The present investigation entitled “Study Static Anthropometric Measurements of and Body Somatotypes of Women” was undertaken by conducting survey among 200 selected women from Parbhani city. The data regarding anthropometrtic measurements, body mass index, were assessed by using questionnaire, scientific equipment and observations. Statistical analysis such as standard deviation, analysis of variance and correlation co-efficient test was applied to find out the difference between selected parameters of women with different body types and correlation between selected independent and dependent variables. Findings of the study indicated that there was wide variation in static anthropometric measurements of selected women except for palm length. Major group of selected women was mesomorphic in body type having medium hand grip strength. Thus it can be said that to remain healthy and more productive it is better to maintain ectomorphic body somatotype.
