From "New Body Shape Index Predicts Mortality Hazard Independently of Body Mass Index" by Nir Y. Krakauer and Jesse C. Krakauer:

"Body shape, as measured by ABSI, appears to be a substantial risk factor for premature mortality in the general population derivable from basic clinical measurements. ABSI expresses the excess risk from high WC (waist circumference) in a convenient form that is complementary to BMI and to other known risk factors."
