dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to test the method of estimating sex by carpal measurements designed by Sulzmann et al. (2008) on an American White sample. The sample consisted of 80 (40male and 40 female) adult individuals from the Texas State and Bass collections. Intra-observer error was not significant the sample did have significant normality, asymmetry, and sexual size dimorphism. Univariate sectioning points and multivariate stepwise discriminant function analysis with linear discriminant equations were complete. Univariate sectioning points ranged from having accuracy rates of 47.5% and 88.75%. Multivariate stepwise discriminant analysis had accuracy rates from 82.5% to 92.5%. The univariate sectioning points and linear discriminant equations allow for future researchers to quickly and accurately estimate the sex of American White individuals.
