There are probably people who are more expert than I am on this topic, but . . .

In college I did a statistics project analyzing body circumference measurement as a reliable estimate of body fat. (Actual body fat was determined by hydrostatic testing. I didn't collect the data; I only analyzed it.) More measurement sites made the test more accurate. If I recall correctly, five or more measurement sites gave P < 0.05
