Comment
Some of the measurements in (A) and (B) were obtained from scanned body surface data. It was confirmed that these measurements are comparable to those obtained using the traditional methods. All cephalic measurements were obtained using the traditional methods. The right side was measured. This data was obtained by researchers participating in one of the Millennium Projects of the Ministry of International Trade and Industry. Statistics are available at the website described below. Individual data is also available, for a fee, from the Research Institute of Human Engineering for Quality Life.
