Enter the total neck measurement (in) and the waist measurement (in) into the Neck to Waist Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Neck to Waist Ratio. 

Neck to Waist Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Neck to Waist Ratio. 

NWR = N / W

  • Where NWR is the Neck to Waist Ratio ( )
  • N is the total neck measurement (in) 
  • W is the waist measurement (in) 

How to Calculate Neck to Waist Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Neck to Waist Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total neck measurement (in). 
    • The total neck measurement (in) is given as: 16.
  2. Next, determine the waist measurement (in). 
    • The waist measurement (in) is provided as: 32.
  3. Finally, calculate the Neck to Waist Ratio using the equation above: 

NWR = N / W

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

NWR = 16 / 32 = .500


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total neck measurement (in) = 15

waist measurement (in) = 30

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator above.

NWR = N / W = ?
