Figure 8.54 Lower segment length, both sexes, birth to 16 years. From Headings (1975), by permission.

Asians have proportionately shorter legs, Caucasians intermediate lengths, and African Americans longer legs, in proportion to upper segment length (upper-to-lower segment ratio, 0.1-1.2 for Asians and 0.85-0.95 for African Americans). However, these data are not reflected in Fig. 8.56, because the lower segment was calculated as the difference between standing height and sitting height, rather than measured (Cheng et al. 1996).
