Anthropometric variables are important biometric characteristics that vary with age, sex, and tribe. This study showed that there are statistically significant differences in some of the measured variables between the Igede and Idoma tribes.  The study also showed a positive correlation between the head width and bizygomatic distance and other anthropometric variables which could be used to predict cephalic indices among the Igede and Idoma ethnic groups of Benue State, Nigeria.
