Mind You, I've Got No Calipers Lying About the House
"Christian Indians and Gypsies Claiming High Caste", I've got a mesorrhine nose.

, entered total nasal height appears to be too low

Results of Racial Analysis
Terminology is according to Vallois (1965).Endocranial volume is estimated according to the Lee-Pearson formula (Comas, 1960).Brain weight is estimated according to Welcker's capacity/cranial capacity tables (Baker, 1974).

Your cephalic index is: 77.1 (mesocephalic).. skull neither very long / very short
Your height/length index is: 63.4 (hypsicephalic)... high forehead
Your height/breadth index is: 82.3 (metriocephalic)... well-proportioned
Your facial index is: 81.5 (euryprosopic)... short, broad face
Your upper facial index is: 50.4 (euryene)... broad cheekbones
Your nasal index is: 76.7 (mesorrhine)... medium width, "non-white" nose
          Your estimated endocranial volume is: 1567 cc (aristencephalic)... large
          Your estimated brain weight is: 1474 gr... high end of the continuum
Euclidean Distance Mahalanobis DistanceCosine Similarity
Proto-Europoid: 28460.22
Mediterranoid: 3255-0
Alpinoid: 19180.6
Irano-Nordoid: 3352-0.31
Dinaroid: 3954-0.62

Your classification is Alpinoid (using Euclidean distance), Alpinoid (using Mahalanobis distance), and Alpinoid (using Cosine similarity).
According to Euclidean Distance:
You are metrically closest to Plate 7, Figure 3 (distance = 10)
You are metrically furthest from Plate 41, Figure 3 (distance = 83)
According to Mahalanobis Distance:
You are metrically closest to Plate 7, Figure 3 (distance = 8)
You are metrically furthest from Plate 21, Figure 5 (distance = 130)
According to Cosine Similarity:
You are metrically closest to Plate 7, Figure 3 (similarity = 0.78)
You are metrically furthest from Plate 41, Figure 3 (similarity = -0.771)
The five types listed in the results of your racial analysis represent five clusters discovered in a multivariate analysis of 152 individuals whose anthropometric measurements are given in the photographic supplement of Coon (1939). The names of the five clusters are arbitrary labels corresponding to traditional designations. They are based on metrical similarity based on nine variables of the head, and should not be interpreted as denoting "races".

Compared to larger men, my skull capacity is a little bit on the low side, lol.  I guess it's "large" in comparison to other women.
