    Introduction: Stature estimation is a process used in forensics study. The most conventionally used method to estimate stature. In forensic cases, mathematical and anatomic techniques are used in stature estimation. In the anatomical method, skull height, height of vertebral column, and lower limb lengths are added, and soft tissues correlation factor is applied. From independent variables using mathematical techniques, stature is estimated, such as long bone lengths, using equations that reflect the linear relationship between stature and the variable. The most commonly used and accurate method is anatomical method that mathematical method. However, anatomical method requires all the parts of the bones in our body. In forensic cases, the available of mutilated body parts or incomplete skeletal material based on measurement of the length of the isolated bones, the height can be determined. Materials and Methods:The 35 male subjects were selected for this study. Using Vernier caliper scale, the length of zygomatic arch was measured . and their height was calculated and correlation between them is analyzed. Results: From this study, there is no correlation between height of the person and length of his zygomatic arch.
