Estimation of Stature from Somatometric Parameters in Male Population

Author: RANJITH RAJ.VPRB, KARTHIK GANESH MOHANRAJ
Abstract: Stature is one of the most significant features of an individual, be it a male or female. Large and tall body size is often associated with social dominance. The complete height of an individual is attained at an age between the mid teen and the early twenties. However each population will have a separate linear equation based on the parameter chosen with regard to the stature. Hence proper analysis and the derivation of the formula for each population is required. This study aims to formulate the stature of young adults in the south indian population can be estimated using 8 different somatometric parameters. Our cross sectional study included the Chennai population of age ranging from 18-26. n=100 was obtained. The somatometrics measures were taken with the help of measuring tape and scales in cm.Data obtained was entered in the Microsoft Excel application and was then exported to SPSS for further statistical analysis, with the obtained data descriptive, frequency & linear regression tests were done. The age of the study population ranged from 18-26.The mean of the age was found to be 21.17 ± 1.891. Length of foot was found to be the most reliable with an ‘r’ value of 0.886 and the breadth of foot was the least with an r value of 0.057. In the obtained south indian male population ,out of 8 parameters 7 were found to be reliable in the estimation of stature. The regression formulas were obtained and it is to be noted that these formulas are specific to this south indian region alone because of the morphology,genetic and geographic variation specific to this population.
