In an attempt to elucidate these gestational variables, Garn, Osborne & McCabe (1979) examined 870 individuals of the 1963-66 birth cohort of participants in the Collaborative Perinatal Project. These children were studied at the time of their seven- to eight-year examination, along with a selected group of clinically normal subjects. The series included children of diabetic, hypothyroid and hypertensive mothers as well as low birthweight neonates and high birthweight neonates.

Multivariate methods have also been employed in the analysis of environmental sources of variation in human crown size (Mizoguchi, 1980), in the interpretation of the influences of earlier developing teeth upon later developing teeth (Mizoguchi, 1983a), and in the evaluation of age related tooth size variation in the Lengua Indians of Paraguay (Kieser et ai, 1985a).

A hypothesis, called a null hypothesis, is now set up to compare the two means. This hypothesis states that the two samples come from two populations whose means xx and x2 are equal. A statistical test is required which will show with what confidence the null hypothesis can be accepted or rejected. One of the most sensitive, useful and powerful tests of the null hypothesis was formulated by William Gosset in 1908, under the pseudonym Student: hence it is called Student's t-test. Formulae for its calculation are available in any standard statistical handbook.
