Ulnar length, Stature, Linear regression.


Stature is a important factor in identification of an unidentified dead body or any mutilated part of such

body. In present study we made an attempt to estimate the stature from percutaneous length of ulna. Study

consists of 94 adult males and 96 adult females between the age group of 18- 24 years, born and brought

up in Maharashtra. The length of the of the right and left ulna was measured with a venier calliper from the

apex of the olecranon to the styloid process and the height of the individual was measured with a calibrated

standing meter rule. The measurements were noted in the proforma. The data was statistically analyzed and

linear regression formulae were derived.
