Data analyzed by applying t test to examine the significance of mean differences, if any, between urban and rural school boys on Body Mass Index(BMI) and physical performance. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) was also computed to find out the cross sectional (classes sixth to tenth) differences in Body Mass Index (BMI), physical performance and its components which followed by Scheffe s Post hoc test, in case of significant F ratios. Level of confidence was set at 0.05.
