In different regions the contribution of the potential risk factors in the formation of the biological development of children has its own characteristics, determined by the the climate and geographical factors, ecological and geochemical factors, social and economic factors, biomedical factors, etc. Methods. It was conducted a comprehensive study of the criteria of biological age in 2839 children aged from 3 to 11 living in Vladivostok. Results. The girls showed significant correlation between early childhood factors, social and sanitary, medical and biological factors and parameters of length and body weight. Food quality was significantly influenced all the criteria of physiological maturity of girls. In boys established a strong relationship between early childhood factors, hygienically-normalized lifestyle factors and length, weight, head circumference, the number of permanent teeth and the level of biological development. Conclusions. Further factor analysis will be carried out. An equity contribution of each factor in the formation of physiological maturity of the child´s body will allow the scientific foundation for a set of measures for the prevention of health problems among children in Vladivostok.
