Anthropometric databases that are representative of the user population are necessary for the design and sizing of clothing, equipment and workspaces. In 1996, a U.S. Marine Corps USMC anthropometric database of 76 dimensions for males and females was derived from the large 1988 U.S. Army Anthropometric Survey ANSUR database using a statistical matching procedure. The need to include USMC body size information in the Jack human figure model provided the impetus to derive additional anthropometric variables. Summary statistics and the measurement descriptions for the 36 dimensions contained herein are provided as a supplement to the initial USMC matching report.
