Abstract

Identity means the determination of the individuality of a person. Identification of a person is one of the most
important issues for a forensic expert in solving many medico-legal cases. The present studies was under

gender. 100 healthy subjects (50 males and 50 females) of age group 21-30 years, who are resident of north
Karnataka, were included in the study. The foot print lengths of both the feet of the participants were taken.
The readings were subjected to statistical evaluation and regression formulae were established for stature
