STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM.-- It is the purpose of this study to determine whether a change in the hemoglobin content of the capillary blood in humans occurs in association with monthly or seasonal meteorological changes. RESEARCH PROCEDURES AND TECHNIQUES.-- A number of inmates from the Massachusetts Correctional Institution at Norfolk volunteered for the study. This group was made up of male subjects between the ages of 18 gnd 45 years. Of the original group, 60 subjects completed the study. Two groups were used, one with 46 subjects identified as group "A" and the other with 14 subjects identified as group "B".* A hemoglobin test was performed on group "A" once monthly for twelve consecutive months. These tests were administered during the first week of each month from 9:00 A.M. to 2:30 P.M. Group "B" was formed by a random sample and organized to determine whether hemoglobin content varies more in one day (specifically between morning and afternoon) than it does from month to month or season to season. A hemoglobin test was performed on the 14 inmates comprising group "B" two times in one day during the first week of each month between the hours of 10:00 A.M. to 11:30 A.M. (first test) and 1:00 P.M. to 2:30 P.M. (second test)[TRUNCATED].
