This research aimed to study the differences in body proportion between Javanese in Malang and Cape Coloured in South Africa, because they both has Asian blood, mixture with the local people in the past. Anthropometric measurements were conducted in 891 Javanese boys, 1175 Javanese girls, 292 high socio-economic status Cape Coloured boys, 282 low socio-economic status Cape Coloured boys, 330 high socio-economic status Cape Coloured girls, and 289 high socio-economic status Cape Coloured girls.
