Abstract :

Sex determination by using a human skeleton or parts of human skeleton remains are very important for medicolegal as well as anatomist & anthropological studies. So, many bones of human skeleton are used for sex determination. Most important bones are hip bone, skull and sacrum etc. Out of this, so many studies are done on the basis of different indicators of hip bone to determine the sex. In present study, we have tried to determine sex of adult human hip bone by using morphological features. There are so many morphological features to identify sex, but out of these only five most important features are selected for study as these features shows higher percentage of identification. These features are (1). greater sciatic notch (2).ischiopubic ramus (3).iliac crest (4).acetabulum direction and (5). obturator foramen. Material for the study consists of 102 adult hip bones(51 right side and 51 left side) and concluded that mulitiple morphological features can identify a sex.
