Body measurements and somatotypes of young adult Jat-Sikh men of Punjab, India.

Singh SP, Sidhu LS, Malhotra P.

Department of Human Biology, Punjabi University, Patiala, India.
Abstract

During 1972 body measurements including height, weight, limb circumferences, skeletal diameters and skinfolds were taken on 100 unrelated and healthy Jat-Sikh men of 17 to 25 years of age, belonging to different areas of Punjab, India. The average height and weight of Jat-Sikhs is 170.4 cm and 54.5 kg, respectively. The mean Heath-Carter somatotype is 3.22-3.40-4.11. The majority of somatotypes is concentrated in endo-ectomorph and meso-ectomorph sectors of the somatochart. Comparisons with recently described data on females of the same area and population show significant sex differences in various body measurements except for the bicristal diameter. The females possess significantly more subcutaneous fat. For the rest of the measurements, the males have higher values. The Jat-Sikh males are comparable in height and weight to the contemporary pooled Punjabi, but are distinctly taller than the neighbouring populations of Himachal Pradesh and pooled all India samples. However, they are comparatively smaller and lighter as compared to European and American populations.

Re: Average Jatt sikh male - 5-7

Don't forget there is a range and a standard deviation. I too think of Jaats as tall. There are Jaat males that exceed the average. If we know more about the distribution of this sample - the one examined by the researchers - we could even estimate the percentage that are above the average height. If the distribution is normal, bell-shaped, with basically even numbers above and below the average height or mean, then the estimation of the percentages within different height ranges will be easy.

Nah thats just Jatts brain washing you and especially Jatt World talking crap.....

Its a long story but I have grown up with Jatts and they actually think I am a Jatt because I am big and strong and have fair skin, not bad looking...... oh yeah the story.... basically Jatts think that any SIkh guy who is strong is a Jatt, so they mistake Chamars and God knows who else by thinking he must be Jatt..... also they think that all tough people are Jatts and talk wildly about how Guru Gobind Singh Ji and Hari Nalwa etc etc a the greatest Jatts ever.... I am sure that this kind of stuff is not prevalent amongst all Jatts but for some reason they have brain washed themselves into thinking like this..... I kind of just give up now - I dont care any more because this ignorance is just not going to change is is fueled even more by places like Jatt World....

Lastly celebrating Jattism as a race is great I dont care but when it goes beyond that into a supiority level then thats when it gets out of hand..... its total pie in the sky stuff

This Greek god type of Jatt just simply does not exist!

However on a postive note, I wish all my Jatt brothers all the best and if they do have such big pride in being a Jatt that they put it into good use (as they have done in previous wars) because we might have some testing times comming up ahead that tests the Sikh people as a whole and we need to support each other.... I am going to a second Sikh to Bangladeshi wedding next week.... oh well!

Good luck!

Here is the minimum height eligibilty chart for Indian army soldier.Punjab region has highest
minimum requirement and that is 170 cm so I guess this average is true as lot of jatt sikhs and hindu jaats apply for army

Re: Average Jatt sikh male - 5-7

I can't get to the original study. So no statistics available for me to look at. The percentages of who is taller than the mean would depend on the statistics that describe this sample. If I could find that out, then we would know whether the typical Jaat is taller than 5-7. It is statistically possible. I don't doubt the average number. but...The average height can be a misleading number for several reasons, and only works if height is normally distributed. Leave it at that for now.
