MEN

Dolichocephalic x- 75.9
Mesocephalic 76-80.9
Brachycephalic 81-85.4
Hyperbrachycephalic 85.5-x

This is data about men, the cephalic index-data is based on the publications of

T.Y.Roschier - Anthropologische Untersuchungen an Bewohnern der Landschaft Karjala (Helsinki, 1931)

A.O.Arho - Anthropologische Untersuchungen in den Landschaften Åland und Varsinais-Suomi (Helsinki, 1934)

Niilo Pesonen, Anthropologische Untersuchungen an Bewohnern der Landschaft Satakunta (Helsinki, 1935)

Niilo Pesonen, Anthropologische Untersuchungen an Bewohnern der Landschaft Savo (Helsinki, 1937)

L.Löfgren - über die anthropologie der Bewohner von Uusimaa (Helsinki, 1937)

Erkki Kivalo, Anthropologische Untersuchung von Bewohnern der Landschaft Nord-Ostrobttnien (Helsinki 1957)

Antti Telkkä, Anthropologische Untersuchung von Bewohnern der Landschaft Häme (Helsinki, 1952)Data of Finland's Sami-people has been excluded from these maps (Esko K. Näätänen - über die Anthropologie der Lappen in Suomi (Helsinki, 1936, 1937)


No data is available for central-Ostrobothnia as far as anthropological zones and part of coastal Central-Ostrobothnia was studied along Southern-Ostrobothnia (Telkkä/Mustakallio). So therefor that zone has been left blank in all maps. Those areas where the measures come from only Swedish speakers of that area (this was mentioned in the studies) have been marked with a YELLOW letter S to signify "Swedish". The Turku/Åbo Archipelago contains mixed data of Finnish and Swedish speakers, separated data is also available but not used in this case.

Similar maps for women will be made available at a later date. I might also make the same maps with data based on stricter classification of cephalic indexes, such as excluding anyone with an over 75 C.I from the dolichocephalic category. This requires re-calculations of the regional indexes based on the frequency tables featured in the studies and takes time. The result of those re-calculations will most likely be, that all areas will have an increase in the brachycephalic categories to a certain extent.

This date is from the 1930's and 1950's and is the latest available data on Finnish people. Finland was mainly a poor rural nation in those days so the effect of living standards might be seen in certain regional differences.
