Abstract:

Beginning with a comprehensive review of anthropometric resources already available, this report serves as a guide to more refined and less costly methods of acquiring needed anthropometric data to meet changing military requirements and to accommodate changing military populations. Many sampling schemes are described and evaluated for their utility in meeting specific USAF needs. Various measurement and sampling errors are discussed and the effects of each type of error on the statistics of major importance in design problems are explained. A multi-faceted plan for the future acquisition of USAF anthropometric data is recommended.
