ABSTRACT
Stature estimation of an individual is considered as one of the vital parameters in identification. Present study was conducted over 257 South and North Indian subjects in Tumkur, India to establish stature of an individual using palm length. Statistical analysis indicated that bilateral variation was insignificant. Sex differences were found to be highly significant. Linear regression equations for stature estimation were calculated and multiplication factors computed. The correlation coefficients between stature and palm length were found to positive and statistically highly significant.
