Resumen

VUKOTIC, Marina. Nationwide Stature Estimation from Length of Sternum Measurements in Montenegrin Adolescents. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2020, vol.38, n.6, pp.1586-1590. ISSN 0717-9502.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022020000601586.

The purpose of this research is to determine a regression equation for estimation of stature from length of sternum measurements. This research was carried out on 1001 subjects (504 male and 497 female) among the population of Montenegrin adolescents. The stature and length of sternum measurements were taken according to the ISAK protocol, and the data were analyzed statistically. Linear regression analysis determined the prediction of and length of sternum on the criterion variable a body height at the significance level of p <0.05. These relations are presented in the form of scatter diagram. Thereby, we obtained the coefficient of determination, the multiple correlation coefficients, the partial correlation coefficient, the regression, t-test and standardized beta coefficient. The results of this research study confirmed that length of sternum reliably predicts stature in both sexes of Montenegrin adolescents and revealed a very useful finding for physical anthropologists and experts from related fields. It was confirmed that there is a correlation between length of sternum and body height (males: 33.1 %, females: 31.3 %). Therefore, length of sternum has proven to be a reliable predictor on the basis of which the actual body height can be estimated.
