First, the impact of the environment on height is crucially dependent on age and not only on absolute but on developmental age; that is, different conditions will have different effects depending on the stage of growth which has been reached, which is itself dependent on the severity and duration of previous insults. Second, so many features of the environ­ ment, many of them difficult to measure, can be shown to affect growth that we cannot take account of them all in a single causal model, such as is required to estimate an elasticity with any worth or use.

But such knowledge is necessarily individual and subjective; unless we have studied the subject intimately, we have no way of distinguish­ ing between the normal pattern of growth and individual variations. In this section, we will describe that normal pattern and the ways in which is it measured. The different tissues which make up the body grow at different rates; indeed some, such as the skin, consist of cells which are contin­ uously produced to replace cells which have died, while others, such as nerve and muscle tissue, are formed during the process of growth in childhood and adolescence and cannot later be replaced.

Although various forms of conscription existed in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Britain - the impressment of seamen and balloting for the militia are examples - such methods never involved a survey of the whole popu­ lation. Even when conscription was introduced in 1916 and again in 1940, it followed a long period of voluntary recruitment, thus remov­ ing a large part of the relevant age-group from the conscription pro­ cess. Only with National Service after the Second World War did Britain adopt procedures which most European states had been using for over a century.
