Sanjay Singh*, Dr. Md. Tabrej Alam and Rahul Rai

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Stature estimation is an important part of the identification process of human skeletal remains or body parts to establish individuality of an unidentified dead, body or any mutilated part of such body by the Medico-legal expert. Aim: The present study made an attempt to estimate the stature from leg length by formulating simple regression equation. Method: Subjects of 200 male and 200 female students of Teerthanker Mahaveer University Moradabad between the age group of 18-25 years was chosen. Leg length of right and left leg were measured with the help of flexible steel tape and stature was measured with the help of stadiometer.. Stature was estimated from leg length statistically using simple regression analysis. Result: The mean of the right leg length for the male subjects was 89.55 ±4.43 cm. and left leg was 89.58±4.42 cm. The height was 168.13± 5.89 cm .for male. The mean of the right leg length for female subjects was 85.86±3.96 cm. and left leg mean was 85.80±4.03 cm. The height was 156.00±5.61cm. for female. The regression equation. For male was Y=4.93+0.50(168.13) and for female was Y=32.11+0.34(156.00). Conclusion: total leg length is important comparison of the population from different racial backgrounds, assessing growth, development of an individual and in diagnosis of any abnormalities in size and shape.

Keywords: Stature, leg length, correlation coefficient, regression equation.
