Abstract:
Body size data for 132 measurements of over 4,000 Air Force flying personnel are presented. Organization of the survey is briefly discussed and the techniques of measurement are illustrated by photographs for the benefit of other anthropologists. Both diametral and surface measurements are included. Dimensions are given in both centimeters and inches. A description of the statistics and an explanation of their use are given with some discussion of certain statistical shortcuts employed in the reduction of the data. The tabulations include range, mean, standard deviation, coefficient of variation, and twenty-five selected values from the first to the ninety-ninth percentile. Means and standard deviation values for each dimension are also given for nine subgroups based on flight duties.
