The survey was conducted on a sample of 400 respondents from Skopje at the age of 11 years. The sample was divided into two subpopulations of 200 males and 200 females. 11 antropometric measures were calculated on the subpopulations. The results of the anthropometric measures were processed with the basic statistical parameters and the normality of the distributions was checked with Kolmogorov-Smirnov's procedure. Multivariate analysis of the variance (MANOVA) was used to determine the differences in anthropometric measures among the groups of respondents of both sexes. The results of the study showed that statistically significant differences in the manifested anthropometric space between males and females exist at body height (ATV) at the level of significance .00, and the kneecap skin (ATV) at level of significance .01.
