Average Morphological Facial Index by region - Finland - Men

- 78.9 = hypereuryprosopic (very short-/broad-faced)
79.0 - 83.9 = euryprosopic (short-/broad-faced)
84.0 - 87.9 = mesoprosopic (moderate in facial form)
88.0 - 92.9 = leptoprosopic (long-/narrow-faced)
93.0 - = hyperleptoprosopic (very long-/narrow-faced)

*Note, the border for hyperleptoprosopicsm is 95-96 for the skull and 93 for living males.

*Note, some omit the mesoprosopic group and instead use a wider group for euryprosopic F.I. 80.0 - 89.9 = euryprosopic (short-/broad-faced). All these studies have the mesoprosopic group to distinguish between moderate broad/short faces etc.

The yellow 'S' indicates that in those areas only Swedish speakers were studied. Mixed data of Finnish and Swedish speakers has been used for the Turku/Åbo Archipelago.

The most long/narrow-faced people according to this data were the Swedish-speakers of Nyland. In comparison the Swedish-speakers of Southern-Ostrobothnia were more broad-faced than the Finnish speakers of Ostrobothnia. According to the studies, there seems to be quite a bit of anthropological differences between the Swedish speaking groups of Nyland, Åland, Abo Archipelago and Ostrobothnia, but that matter deserves its own topic/time and place.
