Another sex estimation methodology survey

by Ed Hagen last modified Sep 12, 2011 06:29 PM
As you know, with some methods of sexing, a 5-point scale is used. Using only five categories could be criticised for producing over-simplified results and we are investigating the extent to which a greater scoring range (1 to 100) is a more useful way to record opinions on the expression of sexually dimorphic characteristics.

The survey is anonymous.  It consists of a series of photographs of a single individual depicted in images that display only a single feature. After a few brief demographic questions, you will be asked to rate each feature using the 100 point scale (where movement towards 1 represents female, movement towards 100 represents male), and finally to rate the entire individual on the same scale. To participate, simply follow the link provided in the announcement, or visit  Any questions, comments, or concerns can be directed to me at  Thank you.
