||Industrial anthropometric data were collected from workers (384 males and 124 females) in various manufacturing industries in the mid-western United States. Eleven length dimensions (including spine length and standing elbow rest height), weight and age were assessed at the worksites. Descriptions and statistical analyses of the data are summarised and compared to other civilian and military anthropometric data. Significant differences between these populations exist in abdominal dimensions and weight; these differences were observed to vary with age. The data may be used in the design of industrial workplaces and equipment or with biomechanical models.
