ABSTRACT

The aim of this study is to estimate height and provide correlation of the cranial anthropometric parameters with stature and also to devise regression formulae for estimation of stature. The height, head circumference, head length and head breadth of 312 Nepalese students from B.P. Koirala Institute of Health Sciences with equal distribution of sex of age 18-35 years were measured and analysed. Correlation and regression analysis were done. All parameters were found to be greater in males than females and each was found to be statistically significant. On correlating the parameters, the best regressor for the estimation of stature in males was head length; in case of females, the best regressor were head circumference and head length. Thus, we can conclude that regression equations and analysis generated from cranial anthropometric parameters can be a supplementary approach for the estimation of stature when extremities are not available.

Keywords: Stature, Cranial anthropometry, Head length, Head, Breadth, Head circumference.
