The morphometric measurements (Birth Body Length, Birth Body Weight, Head Circumference, and Abdominal Circumference) are irreplaceable in general health assessments and the nutritional condition of newborn babies. Many defined and undefined internal and external factors significantly affect the neonates' bodyweight and birth length. The purpose of this paper was to investigate the impact of the time span of 17 years on the body length and weight of newborns, the average age of the mother and the number of births.

Birth Body Length and Birth Body Weight were measured in 214 neonates from Kosovo in two different timelines: 105 neonates born in 2001 and 109 neonates born in 2018. The obtained data were analyzed through descriptive parameters, T-test, and Canonical Discriminant Analysis.

According to the canonical discriminative analysis data, it can be concluded that in 2018 women older gave birth to children with greater body length and weight, compared to 2001 when younger women gave birth to children with smaller body length and body weight.

Among many defined and undefined factors, the difficult socio-economic situation in afterwar Kosovo (2001) has been the main factor for the smaller morphometric dimensions of the children born this period than the children born in 2018.>
