Abstract: This paper reports the results of hemoglobin studies carried out on 1008 menstruating females between the ages of 15 and 49. The sample was made up of 676 healthy married parous women who were taking their children to the child welfare clinics of a government hospital (601 mothers) and of a private hospital (75 mothers). All pregnant and lactating mothers were excluded. Hemoglobin estimations were also carried out on 332 unmarried nurses working at the two hospitals. The survey was carried out between January 1966 and July 1966. The mean hemoglobin level for the whole series was 13.6 g., being also 13.6 g. or the married and 13.7 g. for the unmarried females. Age, parity and social class do not seem to influence the hemoglobin level.
