It consists of 200 subjects (100 males and 100 females) whose palmar prints are collected from department of skin and venereal diseases. Prints are taken on maplitho paper by using printing ink and studied with magnifying lens. Various parameters of dermatoglyphics like finger tip patterns, total and absolute finger ridge count, a-b ridge, atd angle and simian crease count are analyzed by using Statistical calculations. After complete analysis it is concluded form the study that there is definitely a statistically significant difference in the dermatoglyphic patterns of individuals of different sex, age and stature.
