MetadataShow full metadata
It is the purpose of this study to compare the age-height distribution of San Marcos children to an accepted study of the age-height distribution for the children of the nation. To make such a comparative study between these heights and the heights for the child population of the United States it was necessary to find a suitable criteria. Although numerous studies dealing with the heights of children of all ages have been made, few of those may be used to determine the height of a child in comparison with the general average of children of that same age.
