Normal values for physical parameters of the head, face and hand in Japanese children

Summary

A total of 19 physical parameters of the head, face and hand were measured in 1,800 Japanese children of ages one month to 15 years. They were grouped according to sex and age: 1–3 month, 4–6 month, and 7–12 month age intervals for the first year, and thereafter yearly intervals. Exceptional values were excluded referring to the estimated mean and standard deviation. The results were presented in graphic forms with the mean value ±2 standard deviations (SD) for each sex and age group, and compared with the norms for Caucasian children.
