  • Methods: Pooled T-Test, ANOVA, Boxplot,
  • Abstract:

    Each singer in the NY Choral Society in 1979 self-reported his or her height to the nearest inch. Their voice parts in order from highest pitch to lowest pitch are Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass. The first two are typically sung by female voices and the last two by male voices.

    One can examine how height varies across voice range, or make comparisons of sopranos and altos and separate comparisons of tenors and basses. There is some evidence of the shortest singers reporting greater heights, possibly to avoid standing in the front row in a concert.
