Abstract: Anthropometric measurements of 1169 Saudi school boys between the ages of 6 and 14 years are reported. The boys were randomly selected from primary schools in the city of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Measurements of height, weight, grip strength, chest, triceps andsubscapular skinfold thicknesses as well as biacromial, chest, bi-iliac, knee, and elbowbreadths were taken. Saudi boys have slightly lower values for body weight and height thanAmerican boys (NCHS standards)- Value« of skinfold measurements increased with age upto age II where they plateaued and took then a sharp increase by age 14. Means of triceps andsubscapular skinfolds of the Saudi boys are also lower than some standards from U.S.A.throughout age 13. At age 14, however, the Saudi boys have higher means than the U.S.A boys.
