Anotace: The case study presents a collection of anthropometric data obtained from security agency personnel who worked at the National Defence University of Malaysia in 2011. The study involved 450 male respondents ranging from 21 to 57 years old. Anthropometric dimensions of chest, shoulder, waist, hip, and neck circumferences were measured, and one-way ANOVA was performed to determine significant difference for selected parameters by age group. Statistical results showed a significant correlation between body measurements (chest, waist, hip, and neck circumferences) and age group.
