Utilizing descriptive statistics and percentile plots, the data was analyzed and categorized into five distinct grades: very good, good, average, poor, and very poor. This research significantly contributes to enhancing the understanding and promoting the health of female college students, offering a normative framework for future interventions and research endeavors.
