Estimation of Hard-to-Measure Measurements in Anthropometric Surveys Choi, Jong-Hoo; Kim, Ryu-Jin;
Anthropometric survey is important as a basis for human engineering fields. According to our experiences, there are difficulties in obtaining the measurements of some body parts because respondents are reluctant to expose. In order to overcome these difficulties, we propose a method for estimating such hard-to-measure measurements by using easy-to-measure measurements those are closely related to them. Multiple Regression Model, Feedforward Neural Network(FNN) Model and Projection Pursuit Regression(PPR) Model will be used as analytical tools for this purpose. The method we propose will be illustrated with real data from the 1992 Korea national anthropometric survey.
