Abstract:

This five-part series of reports tabulates the statistical relationships among anthropometric measurements so that designers of Army materiel systems will be able to utilize the data in improving the man-materiel interface. The kinds of statistical relationships tabulated include simple correlations, partial correlations, bivariate regressions and multiple regressions. The simple correlations, partial correlations, and bivariate regressions are among all pairs of characters. Four sets of partial correlations are included, partialling out stature only weight only stature and weight simultaneously and stature, weight, and age simultaneously. Standard multiple regressions include specific anthropometric dimensions regressed on standard pairs of measurements. Stepwise multiple regressions were also calculated for each anthropometric dimension using the first five independent variables selected in the stepwise procedure. All analyses were performed separately for males and females and are reported separately in the tables.
