*The Data provided in the above table was collected from three seperate studies. The first being the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) conducted between 1988 and 1994 in the United States in which subjects were at least 20 years of age and the population was ethnically diverse, interviewing approximately 8000 men and 8000 women. The second being the MIL-STD-1472D study completed by the U.S. military in which approximately 500 men and 500 women were measured to quantify body size differences for human engineering uses. The third being the Quebec Family Study completed in 2001 comparing body shape (waist to hip ratios extracted) in 313 men and 382 women.
