Author(s): Lakshmi Tara and Dr. Hari Singh
Abstract:
The present study has been conducted on 300 players with an aim to find out the difference in selected anthropometric characteristics between tribal (n=150) and non-tribal (n=150) senior secondary school players of Himachal Pradesh. Tribal sample were taken from the two tribal districts i.e. Lahaul- Spiti and Kinnaur and two tribal tehsil i.e. Bharmour and Pangi of Chamba district in Himachal Pradesh. Non-tribal sample were taken from the three districts i.e. Hamirpur, Bilaspur and Una of Himachal Pradesh. Each player was tested for various anthropometric measurements necessary for estimation of body weight, height, chest circumference, upper arm circumference, forearm circumference, thigh circumference and calf circumference of tribal and non-tribal players. To analyze the difference in selected anthropometric characteristics of two groups of tribal and non-tribal players were determined through‘t’ test. From the findings, it has been found that non-tribal senior secondary school players possessed significantly upper arm circumference, forearm circumference and calf circumference and depicted somewhat higher mean value for height. The tribal senior secondary school players possessed significantly higher chest circumference and depicted somewhat higher mean value in weight and thigh circumference.
