Abstract

Stature is one of the basic parameters that aids in identification of an individual. Though not overtly specific in nature, it does help to narrow down search parameters in cases of grossly mutilated bodies or body fragments. In a variety of studies reported worldwide, a correlation was observed between stature and length of body segments. However a discerning finding was that stature differs based on environmental, geographical and demographic factors, thus warranting the need for population specific formulae for assessment of stature from various body parts. This study conducted an analysis of stature estimation on individuals of Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh and reports that there is a formula specific for estimating stature from combined forearm length in males and females.
