This research study aims at modeling the self-esteem of an individual based on body weight and body measurements. There were 252 individuals sampled, and their response was recorded. The file contains 16 individual characteristics and one density. The density is the mass of a person in kilograms per unit meter square of the individual volume. The second feature is body fat in kg. This measures the average weight of fat in an individual. Age in years was the third characteristic. The four and fifth characteristics measured the weight in kilograms and height in meters. The other body parts measured was the neck, chest, abdomen, hips, thigh, knee, ankle, biceps, forearm, and wrist. The last characteristics were the self- esteem score (Cain et al., 2017).
Self-esteem can be thought of as the value and respect an individual has according to themselves. Empirical studies have proven that there is a correlation between self-esteem and how one takes care of themselves emotionally, spiritually, and physically. This works hand in hand with the body image. Several health researchers have tried to model factors that influence the self-esteem of an individual (Hübner et al., 2016). For instance, (Katerina Maximova, 2015) found that most overweight boys and girls underestimate their body size.
