Linear and multiple regression equations formula for stature estimation were calculated. The co-relation co-efficient between stature and right middle finger length were found to be positive and statistically highly significant (p<0.01). The highest co-relation co-efficient is - (+0.35). The regression formula was checked for their accuracy, applicability and reliability.
