ANTHROPOMETRIC DIMENSIONS REPRESENTATIVE OF AVERAGE THREE AND SIX YEAR OLD CHILDREN SIZE FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF MASTERMOLD BODY FORMS

Mastermodel Body Forms were created to reflect the size and shape of the average three and six year old children. The mastermodels were erected on the basis of available U.S. population data and/or estimates interpolated from such data and on the basis of the collective judgment of a panel of experts in anthropometry. Ninety-eight dimensions were generated to describe the external morphology of the children. The description includes dimensions and definitions for each of the measurements as well as the associated landmark definitions. A bibliographical reference used for collation of child anthropometry and a list of other selected references are attached. /AUTHOR/
