Abstract

This study was carried out to determine the Ischiopubic Index of Madhya Pradesh (India) particularly those living in Gwalior region.

Digital Vernier calipers had been used for taking measurements. A divider with fixing device was also used for taking the measurements. All the observations were tabulated and analyzed statistically and compared with the previous studies. Results: Ischiopubic Index came out to be 121.059±8.013 (Range 105.97 – 137.34) in males and 138.41± 9.936 (Range 117.89 - 153.99) in females, the difference between the means of the two sexes being statistically significant (p-value < 0.001).
