Anthropometry provides scientific methods and techniques for taking various measurements and observation on the living being and the skeleton.Stature is one of the numerous data for identification.The stature prediction occupies relatively a central position in the identification necessitated by the medicolegal experts or medical jurisprudence and also in the anthropological research.This study was taken up with the aim of finding out whether there is any correlation between stature & finger length,and also to find out which finger is best to estimate the stature of an individual, in males and females individually. Till date, most of the workers on stature estimation have used the length of long bones such as femur, tibia, humerus, radius, etc. A meagre data is available on previous works done for calculation of height from finger length. Hence an attempt is made to fill this lacuna. In the present study it was found that there is a significant correlation between stature and finger length. Ring finger is best to estimate stature in both males and females.
