    Introduction: Establishment of an identity is very much important in both civil and criminal cases. Stature is one of the criteria of personal identification. The present study is an attempt to evaluate a possible correlation between stature of an individual and the length of the clavicle. Materials and Methods: The study was conducted on 50 male individuals of age 18–45. The length of clavicle was measured using a centimeter scale. Stature was measured in centimeter (cm). Each subject was asked to stand barefoot on a flat surface on the ground. Upright height was taken from the vertex to the foot according to the anatomical position and Frankfurt plane. To minimize subjective errors, all the measurements were taken 3 times, and then, mean was calculated. Results: A sample of 50 individuals was considered, and the measurements were taken randomly using standard tapes. The data obtained was analyzed statistically using Microsoft Excel software, and the average living stature for an adult male was determined. The linear relationship between the living stature and length of clavicle of each side was worked out in the form of regression equation. It was found that the clavicle length showed a positive correlation with the stature. Conclusion: It was concluded that the length of the clavicle could be used in the estimation of stature among adults. If the measurement of clavicle is obtained, the stature can be calculated, respectively; this would be useful for anthropologists and Forensic Medicine experts.
