The MORPH Longitudinal Database has descriptive statistics associated with the variables included. The database contains metadata in the form of age, gender, race, height, weight, and eye coordinates. See all MORPH Longitudinal Database information here.


Academic MORPH Database

The Academic MORPH Database has 55,134 images of 13,618 subjects. This academic database is for developmental use only. Companies or other non-academic licensees must use the commercial, MORPH Longitudinal Database. The Academic MORPH Database has abbreviated descriptive statistics associated with the variables included. See all Academic MORPH Database information here.


Modifications

Modifications can be made to the database to suit licensee needs. For example, a version of the MORPH Longitudinal Database has been modified to only sort race and gender. In this case, the modified dataset has all of the photos from the full MORPH Longitudinal Database, but the photos and metadata are conveniently sorted by gender and race. The modified race and gender version of the MORPH Longitudinal Database has associated descriptive statistics of the variables included.
