Analysing these figures, we get the following results:—­

Highest number.  Lowest number.  Average.

Stature [26]    163 cm.         147 cm.         155.1 cm.
(64.2 ins.)     (57.9 ins.)     (61.1 ins.)
Head length     19.7 cm.        17.4 cm.        18.5 cm. 
Head breadth    15.4 cm.        14.0 cm.        14.8 cm. 
Cephalic index  86.8            74.7            80.0
Cranial index   84.8            72.7            78.0
Nose length     5.6 cm.         4.3 cm.         5.1 cm. 
Nose breadth    4.8 cm.         3.8 cm.         4.3 cm. 
Nasal index     100.0           71.4            84.3 [27]

    Number of cranial indices under 75 = 4 (20 per cent.). 
    Number of cranial indices between 75 and 80 = 10 (50 per cent.). 
    Number of cranial indices over 80 = 6 (30 per cent.).

There are a few points in connection with these figures to which I would draw attention.  The very short man (No. 20—­height, 147 cm.) has a cranial index of 75.1, on the border line between dolichocephaly and mesaticephaly.  He has also a short nose (4.6 cm.), and is one of the two with the narrowest noses (3.8 c.m.).  The very tall man (No. 8—­height, 163 cm.) has a long head (19.4 cm.), and the lowest dolichocephalic cranial index of 72.7, and is one of two with the longest noses (5.6 cm.).  The other very tall man (No. 10—­height, 163 cm.) has one of the two shortest heads (17.4 cm.), and the highest brachycephalic cranial index of 84.8, and has a long nose (5.5 cm.) The man (No. 2) whose nasal index is 100 has the mesaticephalic cranial index of 78.3 (almost the average index).  The other man (No. 4) whose nasal index is 100 has a head of exactly the average length (18.5 cm.) and the greatest breadth (15.4 cm.), and the brachycephalic cranial index of 81.2.  The man (No. 17) with the lowest nasal index of 71.4 has a very short head (17.7 cm.), and the brachycephalic cranial index of 82.2.
