Abstract

Stature estimation from percutaneous body measurements forms part of forensic anthropological analysis for the purpose of identification. However, there is a great void in such norms for south Indian population. This study is aimed at modeling the stature on the basis of percutaneous ulnar length in human subjects comprising of south Indian population. The study was conducted in the Department of Anatomy in collaboration with the Department of Forensic Medicine, A.J. Institute of Medical Sciences, Mangalore on 200 young and healthy students comprising of 100 males and 100 females in the age group ranging from 20 to 22 years. The measurements were taken by using standard anthropometric instruments. It is remarked that ulnar length show a linear relationship with the stature, where stature is normally distributed.
