Basic calculations with data
The body variables are divided according to the Dutch standard eel partitioning. This means that using the average (P50) and the standard deviation an estimation can be found for other percentiles. The following formula can be used for this:
The Z-value can be fount in a table which consists of overshooting chances for the eel partitioning. (look at het z-value table). The remaining population after dimensioning can be found by turning the formula.
Now the overshooting percentage can be found in the z-value table.
Determining mixed population
To get to a mixed population (g) consisting of a group of men (m) and a group of women (v), the next fomula's can be used:
When both groups are equal size, this results in the followinf forumla:
Determining the distribution of 2 added measures
To add or substract two measures, the next formulas can be used (only when the measures are in length of each other)
For the combining of measures a table with estimations of correlations can be used.
(Estimated correlations from Roebuck (1975) through averageing and rounding off different types of measurements.)
Determining remaining population
For calculating the remaining suited population (Pz) after dimentioning of a subject in two dimensions, for which (Px) respectivly (Py) are the percentages, the next formula applies (only if Px is smaller or equals Py)
