Data::Vitals::Hips - A measurement of the circumference of the hips


  `--> Data::Vitals::Hips


Data::Vitals::Hips is part of the Perl "Vital Statistics" Library.

It is a very simple class that allows you to create objects that represent a single measurement of the circumference of the hips.

Please note that this measurement does not refer to the "high hips" measurement. This is a different value, for which a class does not yet exist.

Taking this Measurement

Place the measuring tape around the body at the fullest part of the seat. Pull the measuring tape so it conforms to the body and does not fall down, but do not pull it tight.

More information and diagrams are available at


Data::Vitals::Hips is implemented primarily in Data::Vitals::Circumference and shares all its methods.

Data::Vitals::Hips does not have any additional methods unique to it.
