Abstract
This anthropometric study of the Land Forces personnel was conducted on behalf of the "Clothe the soldier" programme. For a 3 month period, a team of 19 trained individuals collected 140 traditional anthropometric measurements as well as 2D and 3D images on a sample of 709 regular force soldiers. The population sample consisted of 243 women and 465 men. The survey team traveled to the following 8 Canadian Forces bases: St-Jean, Valcartier, Gagetown, Ottawa, Petawawa, Kingston, Borden and Edmonton. The measurements were taken using the production line method in which the participants proceeded through 10 stations: two marking stations, seven measurement stations and one 3D head digitizing station. The measurement error (by observer and between observers) was evaluated and controlled on a daily basis for the whole survey duration. This document presents the results obtained by in survey. In all, 200 anthropometric measurements are reported: 140 direct measures, 56 derived measures and 4 indices.
