 SparkNotes: Geometric Measurements: Circumference
The circumference of a circle is the length of the curve that encloses that circle.
In fact, the circumference is dependent solely on the radius of a circle: circumference equals 2πr, where r denotes the length of the radius.
Thus, the circumference of a circle is the length of the 360 degree arc of that circle.

As the name implies, occipitofrontal circumference is a measurement of the circumference of the head around the occiput, or posterior aspect, of the skull, to the most anterior portion of the frontal bone.
Therefore, head circumference accurately reflects brain size and growth during gestation and the first years of life—the period of the majority of brain growth—except in unusual situations such as hydrocephalus, enlargement of the subdural space, significant scalp edema or a rickets-thickened skull.
For a given head circumference, genetic, biologic and environmental risk factors as well as the presence of a specific medical diagnosis will worsen the prognosis for any given head circumference (e.g., retardation in the family, congenital rubella, syphilis or prenatal alcohol exposure, prematurity, early childhood institutionalization, cerebral palsy or severe developmental delay).

I know this is hypothetical, and involves many generalities (among them the circumference of the earth) but the math seems to play out.
Circumference and radius are both linear dimensions, and are proportional to each other.
Interestingly, it does not matter what the initial circumference and radius of a circle are, increasing the circumference by six feet will increase the radius by about one foot.

 Circumference/Perimeter of an Ellipse: Formula(s) - Numericana
Circumference of an Ellipse by Robert L. Ward in "MathForum@Drexel".
The original motivation of the paper by Barnard, Pearce and Shovanec was to prove that Muir's formula is indeed a lower bound for the circumference of any ellipse (a question apparently first raised by Matti Vuorinen in 1996).
When a very precise value of the circumference of an ellipse is needed at a reasonable computational cost over the whole range of eccentricities (including both extremes), a very good idea is therefore to use the above expansion if the ellipse is somewhat elongated and the Gauss-Kummer expansion otherwise...

 SparkNotes: Perimeter and Area: Circumference and Area of a Circle
The circumference of a circle is its "perimeter," or the distance around its edge.
Since π is the ratio of the circumference to the diameter, π = c/d; c = π×d; and d = c/π; where c and d are the circumference and the diameter, respectively.
The circumference divided by the diameter should be roughly equal to π.

 Waist Circumference Can Signal a Syndrome / June 7, 2004 / News from the USDA Agricultural Research Service
Volunteers in the "white bread" group consumed about 16 percent of their daily calories as white bread or refined grains, which is almost five times more than was consumed in the "healthy" group.
While those in the "healthy" cluster gained an average 1/6-inch in waist circumference annually, those in the "white bread" cluster gained close to half an inch annually.
Abdominal weight gain and corresponding increase in waist circumference contribute more than does overall weight to the development of "metabolic syndrome." This condition is noted by a combination of abdominal obesity, high triglycerides, high blood pressure and poor blood sugar control, all of which increase risk for heart disease and diabetes.

 Ellipse Circumference
Here we evaluate the circumference of an ellipse with semi-axes a and b, considered as the two-dimensional variety of n-dimensional ellipsoids.
Apparently, one would think that computing the circumference S of an ellipse with semi-axes a and b is an established task and that one can hardly say anything new about the topic.
Here we present a method for a derivation of approximations to the ellipse circumference based on the exploitation of border cases (one semi-axis null or all semiaxes equal), symmetry under permutations and the dimensional scaling property.
