Sexual differentiation by morphological measurements of children from 5 to 9 years old and for adolescents from 12 to 17 year old


Cahiers d'Anthropologie et Biometrie Humaine 4(1-2): 77-86
Sexual differentiation by morphological measurements of children from 5 to 9 years old and for adolescents from 12 to 17 year old
A sexual differentiation by morphological measurements is based on 2 anthropometric proportions : (biiliocristal diameter/height of anterior ilio-spinale) and width (shoulder-hip/hip-waist). In a previous article, a masculinity-femininity scale has been developed with individual values of these 2 proportions for young adults. This method is used now for 158 children and 109 adolescents of both sexes. It shows a significant differentiation between the little girls and boys mean value. But at adolescence, the 2 anthropometric proportions separate individually boys from girls. This method is sensitive to the sexual belonging. Moreover it isn't influenced by leaness or fatness, except for very obese boys. The same masculinity-femininity scale can be used for adolescents and young adults.
