The aim of the study was to find out the stature from bigonial diameter of Uttar Pradesh population and to compare our study with similar previous studies. Methods: This study was held on 300 medical students, including both males and females age between 18 and 25 years in the Anatomy Department, Sarojini Naidu Medical College, Agra. Anthropometric rod was used to measure stature and digital vernier caliper was used to measure bigonial diameter. Results: There is a moderate degree of positive correlation between stature and bigonial diameter. The Pearson correlation coefficient was calculated to be 0.350 and P value calculated was <0.0001, which is statistically significant. Conclusion: We draw the inference from the present study that like other part of the human body, bigonial diameter can be utilized for the approximation of stature when facial remains are escorted for medicolegal assessment. In this study, regression equation was developed with good reliability and applicability and can be used in maxillofacial and facial reconstructive surgeries.
