Özet

Introduction and aim: The investigation of new anatomical criteria and revalidation of existing ones in sex determination for different populations are among main research foci of forensic anthropometry. In that context, the pelvis is the most extensively studied bone. A number of qualitative classifications, dimensional measurements and indices have been proposed for investigative anthropometry and forensic studies. Independent use of these parameters generally provided an accuracy rate of 70-75%. In this study, the accuracy rate of the subpubic angle in sex determination was investigated in living Anatolian Caucasians.
