Growth of Japanese Children Born in America and in Japan

Notes: This study compared 320 Japanese American school children in the Seattle area with 521 students in Hiroshima Prefecture in Japan. Most of the Seattle students attended Japanese schools in Washington state.

The study found that the American-born Japanese students were taller and had larger heads (this was the eugenics era, when head shape was considered significant) than their counterparts in Japan. The conclusion was that environmental differences affected the physical development of children. With 26 charts and figures.
