There are many calculators and methods for calculation of Body Mass Index. But, the universal formula was developed by Belgian Adolphe Quetelet in 1869:

BMI= divide your weight in kilograms by the square of height in meters

Of course, it's not a perfect formula. You should consider the gender and age of the person, his body type, also the type of his/her daily job or activity

For athletes or people who are gaining muscle mass it is not relevant, because the weight will be calculated not by fat but by muscles.

For children and teenagers, this formula just does not work, because the body is still in growing phase.

However, the WHO (World Health Organisation) believes that this formula is actual for most of people.
