Rakhin Kareparambil Balan, Prajith Thekke Madathil

Abstract :

Cephalic index (CI), is an important parameter for detecting the race of an individual whose identity is unknown. Due to lack of documented research on cephalic index of individuals of North Kerala, the process of establishment of identity of skeletal remains do not often meet the professional standards. The data was collected from the dead bodies ought to the Department of Forensic Medicine in Govt. Medical College, Kozhikode which generally consists of North Kerala population. It consisted of 254 males and 146 females. Length of the head and skull showed positive correlation with height, weight and age of the individual. Dolichocephalic or narrow headed skull predominated in the study population. Cephalic index showed a decreasing tendency as the age advances. No significant inference regarding sex difference in cephalic index could be made out.
