    Re: Anthropometry

    You have to measure head breadth too.



    C.I.=(head breadth/head lenght)*100

    Re: Anthropometry

    measure in milimeters, much more precise.

    (and yes, I know it's easily converted, but measuring thinking about milimeters will render a more accurate one than measuring in cms and thinking you can convert it easily)
    every year is getting shorter, never seen to find the time,
    plans that either come to nought, or half a page of scribble lines,
    hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way;
    the time has come, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say.

    Strange, you have a completely round Alpinid frontal, but your profile is hyperdolichocephalic!!!!

    Terminology is according to Vallois (1965).Endocranial volume is estimated according to the Lee-Pearson formula (Comas, 1960).Brain weight is estimated according to Welcker's capacity/cranial capacity tables (Baker, 1974)..


    Your cephalic index is: 75 (dolichocephalic)
    Your height/length index is: 65 (hypsicephalic)
    Your height/breadth index is: 86.7 (acrocephalic)
    Your facial index is: 92.3 (leptoprosopic)
    Your upper facial index is: 61.5 (leptene)
    Your nasal index is: 64 (leptorrhine)
    Your estimated endocranial volume is: 1460 cc (aristencephalic)
    Your estimated brain weight is: 1360 gr


    Euclidean Distance Mahalanobis Distance Cosine Similarity
    Proto-Europoid: 29 54 -0.11
    Mediterranoid: 19 18 0.18
    Alpinoid: 20 15 -0.05
    Irano-Nordoid: 17 10 0.18
    Dinaroid: 24 22 -0.28


    Your classification is Irano-Nordoid (using Euclidean distance), Irano-Nordoid (using Mahalanobis distance), and Irano-Nordoid (using Cosine similarity).

    According to Euclidean Distance:

    You are metrically closest to Plate 45, Figure 4 (distance = 8)
    You are metrically furthest from Plate 4, Figure 2 (distance = 64)

    According to Mahalanobis Distance:
    You are metrically closest to Plate 45, Figure 4 (distance = 5)
    You are metrically furthest from Plate 5, Figure 1 (distance = 138)

    According to Cosine Similarity:
    You are metrically closest to Plate 45, Figure 4 (similarity = 0.8)
    You are metrically furthest from Plate 38, Figure 4 (similarity = -0.667)

    The five types listed in the results of your racial analysis represent five clusters discovered in a multivariate analysis of 152 individuals whose anthropometric measurements are given in the photographic supplement of Coon (1939). The names of the five clusters are arbitrary labels corresponding to traditional designations. They are based on metrical similarity based on nine variables of the head, and should not be interpreted as denoting "races".
