*N,* number of femora investigated (f, female; m, male). Subadults,age 0–20 years; adults, age 21–50 years; old people, age above 50 years. Note that after rounding of the numerical data, the mean and standard deviation for the medial view of adult femora are the same as the overall mean and standard deviation, for example. This is an accidental coincidence, and these identical values are real, and not the result of a typo.
