Özet

A population of 1.076 women aged between 40 and 54 years has been studied using the method of cluster-stratified and random sampling. The median age at menopause was 46.24 +/- 0.13 (mean +/- SEM) years. Obese women reach menopause on an average of 1.7 years earlier than women with chronic energy deficiency (p < 0.01). Other potential correlative measures, education, marital status, number of children, and urban/rural residence were found to have an effect on the age at menopause.
