Abstract
A representative sample of Hungarian conscripts were taken from the cohorts of the 18-year-old young males in 1998 (n=8,000). Anthropometric, medical and socio-demographic data were collected in the sample. In this study only the effects of some socio-demographic factors on the cephalic and the morphological facial indices were analysed, but the effects of genetic factors were also observed. A rapid debrachycephalisation and the tendency of the face to become narrower and higher were also found in the sample.
