This paper presents the differences of anthropometric data between Malaysian, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Taiwanese, North American, North African, South Indian, Portuguese and Australian, which can be use in anthropometric test dummy (ATD) and the computational modelling of ATD. The available anthropometric data of stature, sitting height and sitting knee height for male and female are analyzed by weighting them according to their ranking in the corresponding parameters and presented in bar chart. It is found that Australian male and female have the biggest body posture compared with others. The results also indicate that females in Australia, North Africa and South India, when the three parameters are considered, they have bigger posture than male. For the computational model, hybrid modelling combine finite elements and rigid bodies can be an alternative approach.
