Correlative study of wingspan (armspan) length and body length in students of SEGi University, Malaysia
by Open Science Repository Anthropology
A cross-sectional, anthropometric survey was conducted among local students (154 males and 164 females, total = 315) of SEGi University, Malaysia to correlate wingspan length to body length. Measurements were recorded and statistical analysis were done using SPSS version 21.0. Males were taller and had longer wingspan than females. The wingspan – body length ratio was 1.016, indicating wing span to be longer than body length. Males (1.023) had a significantly higher ratio than females (1.001). A strong positive correlation between the two measurements was observed (r = 0.93). The correlation coefficient was not significantly different in males (r = 0.824) and females (r = 0.789).Keywords:
standing height, arm span, anthropometric measurements, stature.
