'Gardasevic J, Masanovic B, Arifi F, 2019: RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TIBIA LENGTH MEASUREMENTS AND STANDING HEIGHT: A PROSPECTIVE REGIONAL STUDY AMONG ADOLESCENTS IN NORTHERN REGION OF KOSOVO. Anthropologie (Brno) 57, 3: 263-269'.
 
Abstract
The purpose of this research is to examine standing height in Kosovan adolescents in the Northern Region as well as its association with tibia length, as an alternative to estimate standing height. A total of 177 individuals (87 boys and 90 girls) participated in this research. Anthropometric measurements were taken according to the protocol of ISAK. The relationship between standing height and tibia length was determined by using simple correlation coefficients at a ninety-five percent confidence interval. A comparison of means of standing height and tibia length between genders was performed using a t-test. After that a linear regression analysis was carried out to examine the extent to which tibia length can reliably predict standing height. Results displayed that Northern Kosovan boys are 180.28 ± 5.71 cm tall and have a tibia length of 40.59 ± 2.68 cm, while Northern Kosovan girls are 165.36 ± 4.56 cm tall and have a tibia length of 36.68 ± 2.05 cm. The results have shown that both sexes made Northern-Kosovans a tall group, a little bit taller than boys and a little bit shorter than girls of the general Kosovan population. It turned out that the tibia length reliably predicts standing height in adults. This study also aims to point out the necessity for developing separate height models for each region in Kosovo as the results from Northern-Kosovans don’t correspond to the general values.
