REXHEPI, Agron M  and  BRESTOVCI, Behlul. Prediction of Stature According to Three Head Measurements. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2015, vol.33, n.3, pp.1151-1155. ISSN 0717-9502.

Morphometry is a non-invasive method important to assess the size, proportions, and composition of the human body. Because the prediction is an important subject in almost all life sciences, the aim of this research was to find out the cephalofacial variables that may predict the body height. Three cephalofacial variables and the body height were measured on 288 adult male subjects of the Kosovo Albanian population, aged 18­35 years old. Using the procedures of regressive analysis we found that cephalofacial variables: head height, head circumferences, face height, significantly may predict body height, and in this way we derived the specific regression equation for estimation of the body height, based on these cephalofacial variables. The predicted body height, has relatively high significant correlation (0.512) with true body height, as well as paired T-test indicates significant similarity between these two variables.
