'Haduch E, Szczepanek A, Niedźwiecka E, 2004: Anthropological Studies in the Żywiec Region: Changes in the Head Proportions. Anthropologie (Brno) 42, 2: 121-128'.
The cross-sectional studies conducted for the past 40 years by the Department of Anthropology of the Jagiellonian University on children and adolescents from southern Poland enabled the observation of changes in the values of such parameters as the length (g-op), the width (eu-eu) and the main head index in time. A comparative analysis of peer groups, examined at 10-year intervals, showed slight differences in the value of head length between those groups. However, during the last decade an increase of the head length has been observed, resulting in a decreased value of the main index. Interestingly enough, the phenomenon under study has been encountered, above all, in the youngest children, 3 and 4 years old.
