    Introduction: Stature is an important anthropometric parameter that decides the physical identity of an individual. It is also a genetically inherited character. Stature plays a crucial role in many forensic investigations. This study was performed to predict the stature of an individual using hand dimension. Materials and Methods: The hand dimensions of Chennai populations of both sexes were measured using Vernier caliper. The data obtained were expressed as mean ± standard deviation. All the average values were plotted graphically for easy interpretation. Results: The average height of male and female was estimated. Mean and standard deviation of stature and hand length was calculated. Correlation was found by plotting a graph with the collected values. Conclusion: The present study depicts a significant correlation between the stature and hand dimension of an individual. The data are very essential for identifying of war casualties and medicolegal purpose.
