    A study of 349 women aged 18-20 years from Latvia was performed. Body height and weight, 4 measurements of length, 3 measurements of breadth, 4 circumferences and 4 skinfolds were measured, and 8 indices were calculated. The subjects were divided into five standard deviation classes according to...
