Abstract

Personal identification is difficult if only body parts are found, like foot or hand. Foot length (FL) and hand length (HL) can be used for BH estimation. This study aimed for estimating BH using FL or HL, in Dayak Bukit (DBT), Dayak Ngaju (DNT) and Banjar Hulu Tribes (BHT). It was a cross-sectional study on 114 women chosen with purposive sampling. The correlations between FL and HL with BH were assessed with person correlation and linear regression tests. Correlation coefficients between right and left FL with BH were 0.843 and 0.883 (DBT), 0.733 and 0.709 (DNT), 0.741 and 0.745 (BHT). Correlation coefficients between right and left HL with BH were 0.888 and 0.869 (DBT), 0.722 and 0.638(DNT), 0.658 and 0.660 (BHT). Linear regression formulas were developed to describe the relationship between right and left FL and HL with BH of each tribe. There is a very strong correlation between FL and HL with BH of DBT and a strong correlation between FL and HL with BH of DNT and BHT. Regression formulas were developed to predict person’s BH using FL or HL which is useful in identifying DBT, DNT, and BHT populations. Keywords: foot length, hand length, body height, Dayak Bukit tribe, Dayak Ngaju tribe, Banjar Hulu tribe.
