Anthropometry is a field of study in the measurement of humans. Statistical data is collected of the different body dimensions and is used to help play a role in industrial design, ergonomics, and architecture and even on how clothes are made. Golf clubs are also built based on average proportions for such things a length, lie and grip size. See how you measure up.

Add one point for each true statement and add up you score at the end.
