The national body size surveys for young people as well as a middle scale survey update for adult people are introduced. More than 20,000 subjects aged 4 to 17 are measured from year 2005 to 2009 for the size survey for young people. Standards on the body size of Chinese young people are developed, in which values of different percentiles are given.
Another 3,000 subjects are measured in 4 different regions in China for the update survey for adult people. Previous survey on adult people from year 1986 to 1988 is also mentioned. 3D body scanning measuring is implemented in the latest two surveys. Sampling details as well as measurement items are presented.
A new national body size survey for adult people is now being initiated by CNIS in 2012 with support from China Ministry of Science and Technology. Biomechanics and human characteristic parameters are also considered to be covered.
