Fitness and health of an Inuit community : 20 years of cultural change / Andris Rode and Roy J. Shephard.: R73-3/92-05E-PDF

"The impact of cultural change on working capacity, lung function, growth and development, body composition, and strength has been assessed by collecting physiological, anthropometric, and health data on the Inuit living at Igloolik, NWT (69° N, 81° W). Data was collected at three stages of "acculturation", in 1970, 1980, and 1990. All tests conformed to the standard protocol established for the International Biological Program. In 1970 we saw 148 males and 118 females aged 9 to 66; ten and twenty years later the original investigators used the same methods and equipment to test 201 males and 143 females aged 9 to 76 in 1980; and 222 males and 161 females aged 10 to 75 in 1990"--Abstract.
