Abstract

Thailand is divided into four main regions; the North, Northeast, Central, and South. The Southern region can further be divided into the Upper South and Lower South regions. This paper presents the Thai anthropometric data collected from university students in Lower-southern region. The comparison between the current Thai anthropometric data, other existing Thai anthropometric data, and the data from of other nationalities is presented. Several dimensions obtained from the Lower-southern population appear to be different from the data recently collected from other regions of Thailand. The current Thai population appears to have greater height and weight than the Thai, population of the 1980s and 1990s, but still smaller than the adults from, the US and Norway in all selected dimensions.
