    Introduction: Identification of sex of an unknown individual from the skeletal remains is the first and the most important step encountered by the forensic experts and archaeologists and the hip bone is considered as an ideal bone for sex determination as it provides the highest accuracy levels. Pelvis is the most reliable bone used in sexual dimorphism. It has been shown that sexual dimorphism of hip bone varies in different population. The objective of the present study is to analyze the morphometric sex difference in the innominate bone using acetabulum-pubis index. Materials and Methods: A total of 20 dry human disarticulated pelvic bones (10 right sided and 10 left sided) were obtained from the Department of Anatomy, Saveetha Dental College and Hospitals and Madras Medical College, Chennai. Using Vernier caliper, the distance from the anterior and posterior ridge to the ischial tuberosity (IT) and from midpoint to the IT was analyzed. The results obtained were analyzed, tabulated, and represented graphically. Results: The average value from the anterior ridge, posterior ridge, and midpoint to IT was found to be 56.8 mm, 63.68 mm, and 64.56 mm on the right side and 53.27 mm, 62.195 mm, and 63.84 mm on the left side, respectively. Conclusion: This study is helpful for analyzing archaeological skeleton because only one hip bone is required, unlike some other methods in which both the sides of the pelvic bones are required.
