This data set includes the results of two studies which collected anthropometric data of children. The studies, conducted in 1975 and 1977 are available in a number of different formats. These studies were the result of a Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) effort in the mid-seventies. The creation of a publically accessible database is the result of a joint effort between the Information Technology Laboratory (ITL) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the CPSC. Partial sponsorship came from the Systems Integration for Manufacturing Applications (SIMA) project at NIST.
