Correlation matrices based on data from USAF anthropometric surveys of women 1968, 127 variables, flying personnel 1950, 128 variables 1967, 190 variables, and basic trainees 1965, 161 variables a U. S. Army survey of women separatees 1946, 60 variables the Health Examination Survey of civilian adults 1960-1962, 18 variables and a survey of law enforcement officers 1974, 23 measurements are presented for use by engineers who need them in solving design problems and for anthropologists and statisticians whose analyses and understanding of the interrelationships of body size data depend significantly on these coefficients. Sample sizes in these surveys ranged from almost 2000 upward. Definitions and basic univariate summary statistics are presented for all variables involved. Appendices contain a glossary of anatomical terms, tables for establishing confidence limits for the correlation coefficients presented here, computer programs used in preparing this report, and an index by name, anatomical type, and anthropometric technique. A bibliography is also included.
