Identification of Sex of Sacrum in Karnataka Population
Keywords:Sacral Index,vernire caliper, gender,Karnataka
35 male and 35 females adult, non pathological dried sacra were studied. The height and width was measured
with vernier caliper. In comparison of height of sacrum, the mean value of male was 106.4(SD±0.30) and
female 90.1(SD±0.16), ‘t’ test was 395, and P value was highly significant (P<0.01). In the comparative
study of width of the sacrum mean value of males was 99.3 (SD±0.44) and female was 112 (SD±0.08) ‘t’ test
was 122.65 and P value was highly significant (P<0.01). The sacral Index of male was 93.3 and female was
124.27. This significant value to differentiate the male and female genders will be quite useful to medico
legal expert anthropologist and anatomist because these obtained value represent the regional or ethnic study
of sacra. Moreover morphometric values of mesodermal derivatives are un-certain.
