||This study describes a procedure for collecting anthropometric data for Portuguese adult workers and the development of an anthropometric database. 891 individuals aged between 17 and 65 years were measured (399 female and 492 male). A set of 24 static anthropometric measures plus body weight was obtained for each individual. Results suggest that the procedure adopted is valid for anthropometric data acquisition. Additionally, the statistical analysis carried out on the data show that some statistical parameters, such as the variation and correlation coefficients, are within expectations and comparable to those of other populations.
