'Sengupta S, Das BM, 1987: An Investigation on the Finger Patterns of the Jogis of Kamrup District, Assam. Anthropologie (Brno) 25, 3: 273-275'.
 
Abstract
The present paper deals with the finger print analysis of the Jogis, an endogamous caste of Assam. Analysis of the data reveals that the average Jogi (both male and female) possess more loops than whorls. The mean values of Dankmeijer's index, Furuhata's index and index of pattern intensity are higher in females than in males. Sex difference in percentage frequencies of finger pattern is statistically non-significant. The present data have also been compared with the available materials from north east India. It is found that the Jogi population differs significantly from all the tribal (Mongoloid) populations of north east India.
