AbstractThe aim of this study is tofind out correlation between height of an individual and foot length and hand length. The measurement taking includes height in centimeters, foot length and hand length in centimeters to the nearest millimeters. The procedure, aims and objectives of the study was explained to each subject. A written consent was taken from each subject.
Result: The study groups included the equal number of individuals of both the sexes aged between 21-30 years. The correlation coefficient between RHL and stature for males was 0.787 and for females was 0.795. The LHL and stature correlation coefficient in males and females were 0.856 and 0.747 respectively.
Conclusion: In present study entitled “To find out correlation between height of an individual and foot length and hand length” mean values of stature, foot length and hand length were found to be greater for males than females with statistically significant intersex difference. Both foot length and hand length showed positive correlation with stature as indicated by the regression coefficient (r) in both the sexes. The correlation between foot length and stature was more in males than females and stature indicating foot length to be a better predictor of stature in males.
