Leverton, Ruth M. and Pazur, Jean et al. (1961) Concentration of selected constituents in the blood of healthy women 30 to 90 years of age in six north central states (Research Bulletin: Bulletin of the Agricultural Experiment Station of Nebraska No. 198)
The hemoglobin, red cell, total and differential leukocyte, serum protein, calcium, phosphorus and glucose values of the blood of several hundred healthy women 30 to 92 years in six North Central States were determined as one phase of a regional study of nutritional status. The mean, standard deviation and the 95 percent range (mean plus or minus two standard deviations), are shown for each constituent measured. The values for these healthy women tend to be slightly lower than values given as standards in textbooks. Differences between age groups were not significant.
