A study of growth patterns of selected anthropometric Variables of Delhi rural population


Author(s): Dr. Rajbir Singh

Abstract: The present research study is based on cross-sectional data of 389 Jat boys ranging in age from 10 to 20 years. The sample of 389 subjects belonged to a single endogamous genetic group of Jat boys of Delhi (rural area). They all were residing in Delhi of rural areas. For the paper, only two anthropometric variables i.e. weight and height were taken. In such cross sectional data, the age was distributed continuously, some method of age grouping has to be followed. So in order to bunch the subjects into age classes during this phase of growth i.e. from 10 to 20 years, are generally made. The data were grouped into eleven age groups (10 to 20yrs). Descriptive statistical calculation was used for tabulation work. The mean, Standard Error of Mean (S.E.M), Standard Deviation (S.D.) and velocity (V) was used to present the data. The figures to indicate the velocity and distance curve were used. These tabulation work and figures depict the growth patterns of Jat boys in tables. Age wise of 11 groups were made to view the kin anthropometric variables to show the relationship. The tabulation work shows the growth patterns in line with physiology and anatomy.
