Cephalometric analysis for diagnosis and treatment planning of orthodontic patients is essentially a measurement system designed to describe relationships between various parts of the skeletal, dental and soft tissue elements of craniofacial complex. As the linear and angular measurements vary between males and females and with the age, one of our objectives was to compare the statistical difference between males and females. The study was performed using sample size of 60 cephalometric radiographs of 30 males and 30 females. The samples were selected on the basis of class I dental relationship with clinically acceptable profile, no history of orthodontic treatment and of Jaipur (Rajasthan) population.
