Title Anthropometry of South Indian industrial workmen
Bibliographic information Nov. 1992, Vol.35, No.11, p.1393-1398. Illus. 11 ref.
Abstract Results of an anthropometric survey of South Indian male workers in the electronics industry indicate that, in general, South Indian men are smaller than men from Central, Western and Northern parts of India and also smaller than American, German and Japanese men with whom comparisons were made. This difference needs to be allowed for when considering buying and using imported equipment for the electronics industry in South India.
