Abstract: On the basis of individual data of several thousands of human bones excavated in the Carpathian Basin, 1) numerical correlations of the length of bones of the same individual was described. This can help us for instance when assorting bones found in ossuaries; 2) a body height calculation method considering figure and sex differences of individuals living in the Carpathian Basin was proposed; 3) tables were created showing the chances that various postcranial bones belonged to males or females based on the length; 4) stature categories were proposed corresponding to height estimation methods. With 8 tables and 5 figures.
