Measurements of stature and biacromial and bicristal diameters were obtained for two samples of young adult male university students, one from 1901 to 1919 and the other from 1989 to 1991. Means and standard deviations were calculated for each measurement and for three indices. Significant positive trends in stature and biacromial and bicristal diameters were apparent between the two samples: 7.3 cm (4.4%), 3.6 cm (9.9%), and 3.4 cm (12.5%), respectively. The results for stature were compared… CONTINUE READING
