dc.description.abstractengThe primary goal of this study is to estimate the sex of human skeletal materials using morphological and metrical methods described in the forensic and anthropological literature with molecular testing performed on Inden and Lübeck skeletal series and with known demographic data on the South African series. The data from molecular testing and preliminary demographic data form the basis for calculating the accuracy. Those approaches have been adopted from published forensic anthropological literature which claims to be able to estimate an individual's sex from single skeleton fragments. The skeletal materials utilized in the publications are from individuals of multiple ancestries, primarily European and African. Most advise using sample-specific methods and there are few researchers who proved that their discriminant functions could reproduce similar reliability when metrical methods from one population group are applied to a different population
