Height of a human being in an upright position is defined as the distance from crown to heel. Height is an important factor in describing human population. Estimation of height of an individual based on length of different parts of body e. g. foot length, foot breadth, length of superior extremity, length of inferior extremity and different bones of the body. The study was done to assess the correlation between length of radius and height. The study was conducted on 100 subjects in the age group of 2040 years. An anthropometer was used for measuring the height of the subjects and a spreading callipers was used for measuring the length of radius percutaneously. Height showed strong correlation with length of left (r = 0.692, p less than 0.001) and right (r = 0.677, p less than 0.001) radius for males and length of left (r = 0.940, p less than 0.001) and right (r = 0.937, p less than 0.001) radius for females. Since they approached +1, it is concluded that height and length of left and right radius are highly correlated and there is positive correlation between height and length of radius.
