Resumen

POPOVIC, Stevo. Nationwide Stature Estimation from Sitting Height Measurements in Kosovan Adolescents. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2019, vol.37, n.2, pp.504-508. ISSN 0717-9502.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022019000200504.

The purpose of this research is to determine a regression equation for estimation of stature from sitting height measurements. This research was carried out on 1623 subjects (830 male and 793 female) among the population of Kosovan adolescents. The stature and sitting height measurements were taken according to the ISAK protocol, and the data were analyzed statistically; the relationships between stature and sitting height measurements were derived using simple correlation. A comparison of the means of sitting height measurements between sexes was performed using a t-test, while a linear regression analysis was employedto examine the extent to which sitting height measurements can reliably predict stature. The results of this research study confirmed that sitting height reliably predicts stature in both genders of Kosovan adolescents and revealed a very useful finding for physical anthropologists and experts from related fields.
