Bibliographic information June 1994, Vol.23, No.1, p.59-72. 22 ref.
Abstract Forty-four physical dimensions of 50 men and 50 women agricultural labourers in Thailand were measured. The average body dimensions, standard deviation and 5th, 10th, 50th, 90th and 95th percentiles were determined. Differences in the dimensions within different age groups are discussed and the data are compared with those from some Asian and Western countries. The data may be used in the design of agricultural machinery and equipment for Asian countries.
