Synopsis

Stature reconstruction from skeletal remains forms part of forensic investigations in anthropology for the purpose of individual identifications. Despite a growing number of forensic cases in Idoma Land, very little work has been done to document stature estimation among modern Idoma people.

This study set out to determine stature from anthropometric parameters and generate a regression model among Idoma tribe in Nigeria and concluded that Facial height, nasal length, and bizygomatic distance had statistically significant weak positive correlation with stature for both Idoma males and females.
