A Measuring Scale for Physical Growth and Physiological Age


by Bird T. Baldwin 1916

A comparative study of the results of four hundred investigations on over one million individuals shows that the height, weight, and lung capacity of children vary according to nationality, heredity, general social status, urban and rural conditions, geographical distribution, season of the year, normal and abnormal mentality, health, sex, initial size, and stages of physiological maturity. Among the marked modifying factors which have, to a considerable extent, made data incomparable are to be found the manner in which measurements have been taken and recorded; the personal equation of trained and untrained examiners; the varying degrees of accuracy of measuring apparatus; the age of the child, as based on exact birthday, last birthday, or next birthday, with or without months, weeks, and days being taken into consideration; and the measurement of children with or without clothing.
