Sample database of the Spanish anthropometric survey


This a database for academic and training purposes. It is oriented to exemplify the use of trimowa, hipamAnthropom and TDDclust.

It is made up of 600 women selected randomly from the Spanish anthropometric survey and five anthropometric variables: chest circumference, neck to ground length, waist circumference, hip circumference and bust circumference. These variables have been chosen following the recommendations of experts. In addition, they are commonly used in the literature about sizing system design and they appear in the European standard to sizing system.




A matrix with 600 rows and 5 columns. Each row corresponds to an observation, and each column corresponds to a variable.
