STUDY OF DIGIT RATIO AS A POINTER TO HEALTH AMONG ADULT FEMALE
Dr. Pintu Sil
Purpose of the present study was to study the relationship of digit ratio (2D:4D) with health variable-BMI and PBF among young adult female. A total of 50 female college students having the age of 21 to 30 years were selected randomly as subjects for the present study. Height and Weight, Length of index finger (2D) and ring finger (4D), Body Mass Index (BMI) and Body fat percentage (PBF) were the criterion in this study. Standard tools and test were used for the measurement. Mean and standard deviation (SD) have been considered for descriptive statistics and correlation coefficient (r) was calculated by Person Product Moment method. Only 0.05 levels has considered for the present study. All statistical calculations have been done by using standard statistical software. Results reported that mean value of 2D:4Dfor adult female was 0.99. Result also revealed that coefficient of correlation between 2D:4D with BMI (r=0.104) and PBF (r=0.052) were not significant statistically (p<0.05). From findings it was concluded that the 2D:4D was not sufficient to be used as a good pointer of health status in adult female.
Key words: Digit Ratio 2D:4D, Pointer, Health, Adult female.
