Abstract EN

This study presents comparisons of national difference in anthropometric characteristics among Egyptian and Saudi Arabia People.

Anthropometric data from the two studied groups (145 subjects in each group) were compared.

The means of the total body length, upper limb length, lower limb length, median chest depth and the chest circumference were presented.

Also, the correlations between the different measured items were calculated.

The results of statistical analyses showed that there is a significant morphological difference among the studied groups.

The Egyptian body shape has longer limbs with relative short torso and rounded chest contour.

The Saudi Arabia body shape has shorter limbs with relative longer torso and flattened chest contour.

The economic development, social environment and type of work all affect the ethnic differences in the body shape and body contour.
