Abstract: <p>A cephalometric survey (field and radiology) was done in 2002 on population of Papua living in Jayapura-Abepura. The samples of field cephalometry consisted of 89 male individuals and 19 female individuals. The result was that the statures was of below moderate, the body proportion (Rohrerindex) was moderate, the head length was moderate, the head breadth was moderate, the cephalic index was dominant mesocephalic with the tendency of brachycephalic type, the yugofrontal and yugomandibular indices were very wide, type of malocclusion was of dominant class I. The samples of radiology cephalometry consisted of 131 male individuals and 30 female individuals, with the anterior cranial base length (SN) 69+/-3 mm, posterior cranial base length (SBa) 47+/-3 mm., cranial base angle (BaSN) 126º+/-6º. (BaSFc) 137º+/-7º, facial angle (FhNPog) 90º+/-4º, upper incisive protrusion (Npogls) 15+/-4 mm, inferior incisive protrusion (NPogli) 13+/- 4mm., gonial angle (Me/MPGoAR) 121º+/-7º.</p>
