Summary In the 1966–67 London County Council Survey, some 10 000 children were measured twice, on occasions one year apart. Mean single-year velocities were calculated for each successive 6-month period from age centre 5 1/2 to maturity, for height, weight, upper arm and calf circumferences and...
Summary This study investigated the relationships and differences between grip strength, hang time (upper body muscular endurance), sum of skinfold measures, body weight and height among 103 children 3–5 years of age. The results indicated that the only significant ( P < 0–05) difference...
Summary The apportionment of average gene frequency differences into within and between groups of Aleuts, Eskimos and Athabascans reveals a testable model of the time of origin and differentiation of these populations. Based on the ratio of average difference between Aleuts and Eskimos, to the...
Summary A classification formula which includes all true patterns on the proximal sole and is based on topological principles is presented. The frequencies of all respective pattern elements were obtained from a sample of 219 healthy individuals of Croatian origin (116 males and 103 females) and...
Summary A new approach to modelling human height growth is presented which is also suitable for other variables. In a mathematical algorithm, some guess about the functional form of this growth process is improved consistently using the data; the resulting shape-invariant model (SIM) allows an...
Summary A cross-sectional study in La Plata city, Argentina, yielded a mean age of menarche in 6494 schoolgirls, of 12–53±0–05 years, standard deviation 1–22 years, obtained by probit analysis. These values show a relatively early age of menarche in Argentinian girls as compared to other...
Summary Reflectance readings with the EEL Reflectance Spectrophotometer, used in many studies of human skin colour, depend on the spatial orientation of the applicator head of the instrument. Variations of over 15% of the calibration value have been observed. The present paper shows that this...
