Sex determination is the first step in identification of dead body and hip bone or its components are reliable in sex discrimination. The present study was done to determine the applicability of some osteometric parameters of human hip bone in sex identification. Sixteen different variables for the anterior border of 50 human hip bones from a skeletal collection were studied. Statistically significant difference were detected between means in relation to sex for four variables, including: distance from the anterior superior iliac spine to the pubic tubercle, distance from the anterior inferior iliac spine to the iliopubic eminence, distance from the anterior inferior iliac spine to the pubic tubercle and length of the notch between the anterior inferior iliac spine and the iliopubic eminence. These variables could be used for sex determination of the unknown human hip bones.
