Sexually Dimorphic Variation among the Greater Sciatic Notch
The importance of determining sex from skeletonized human remains has become increasingly important with the advancement of the forensic sciences. Current methods used to determine sex from sexually dimorphic traits relies on the subjective analysis of five key traits on the innominates. In order to create standards for objective analyses, these traits need to be closely examined and measured for statistical analysis. The size of the Greater Sciatic Notch has traditionally been associated with sex of the individual (larger in females and smaller in males); although, this study will challenge ...
