Forensic Science!?
 
How can bones be used to determine the age, gender, and ethnic background of a crime victim?

Helping Is My Thing
 
:rolleyes: So you want to know how to identify peoples age and gender by there Bones and i think i can help you.

First of all you can tell the age of a person by the diameter and length of the bone structure.

An easy way to figure out a persons gender is to look at certain parts of the body. For example when you look at a males torso it is more concaved and pointing inward than a female:rolleyes:

You can tell the age by observing the stablity of the bone. but Grinner basicly answered your question.
