Abstract : The survey of women of the Air Force was made in the Spring of 1968 by the Anthropology Branch, Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory, Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio and the Anthropology Research Project (then at Antioch College, Yellow Springs, Ohio). A description of the survey and the results are published in Anthropometry of Air Force Women (AD-743-113), 1972. Data for age (variable 1), 123 body size measurements (variables 2-124), and grip strength (variable 125) were obtained from a sample of 1905 women. 13 measurements were repeated on 1513 subjects with the subjects wearing foundation garments (variables 126-138). The contents of this tape are also described along with Volumes II-V of The AMRL Anthropometric Data Bank Library in the report The AMRL Anthropometric Data Bank Library: Volume I-V, AMRL-TR-77-1, October 1977.
