Abstract

Skeletal characteristics differ among individuals. Each population, therefore, possesses specific standards to optimize their identification accuracy. As certain features (e.g., bones of human body and enamel of
tooth and skeletal) remain intact after death, these provide the precious tools for sexing of individuals
in either the field of medicine or related to prehistoric osteological collections. As the sex hormones
influence different reproductive function, the size-related sexual variations exist in nature remarkably.
In contrast, the hip bone is an ideal bone to use for sex determination. In spite of their critical use, the
findings for the determination of metric sexing with utilization of hip bones in Nepalese people still
remain unknown. We, therefore, collected human hip bones and carried out the study to determination
of metric sexing. Interestingly, our findings have made the present study of interest from anatomical,
anthropological, and forensic points of views.
