Sex estimation

to do
  • Bone types list
  • Calculation for sex estimation number

Sex estimation

in a first version this will be a custom type:
  • Female (=-2)
  • Female? (=-1)
  • Indifferent (=0)
  • Male? (=1)
  • Male (=2)

Calculation of sex estimation:

(Bone feature x costum type (female/female?/indifferent/male?/male) x weighting)/sum of weighting entered = sex estimation

Weighting:

Skull
  • Glabella x 3
  • Arcus superciliaris x 2
  • Tuber frontalis and parietalis x2
  • Inclinatio frontalis x1
  • Processus mastoideus x3
  • Relief of planum nuchale x3
  • Protuberantia occipitalis externa x2
  • Processus zygomaticus x3
  • Os zygomaticum x2
  • Crista supramastoideum x2
  • Margo supraorbitalis x1
  • Shape of orbita x1
Mandible
  • Overall apperence x3
  • Mentum x2
  • Angulus x1
  • Margo inferior (M2) x1
  • Angle x1
Pelvis
  • Sulcus praeauricularis x3
  • Incisura ischiadica major x3
  • Angulus pubis x2
  • Arc composé x2
  • Os coxae x2
  • Foramen obturatum x2
  • Corpus ossis ischii x2
  • Crista iliaca x1
  • Fossa iliaca x1
  • Pelvis major x1
  • Auricular area x1
  • Sacrum x1
  • Fossa acetabuli x1
Robusticity
  • Humerus x1
  • Femur x1

Result:
Sex estimation: -2 to -0,7 = female, -0,69 to -0,31 = possibly female, -0,3 to 0,3 = indifferent, 0,31 to 0,69 = possibly male, 0,7 to 2 = male
