The current analytical study was carried out for the gender specific determination of the carrying angle of dominant arm between ages of 18 to 25. Sixty young adults were participated in this study with half of them were enrolled from both genders. The study groups were students comes from different districts of Kerala. Goniometer was the instrument used for the measuring carrying angle of the study groups. There was a significant difference in the carrying angle in males and females as 10.1332.418 and 13.36 2.52 respectively (p value <0.0001). In female groups when age advances the carrying angle significantly increases (p value <0.0001) in ages of 18,19,20,22,23,24 and 25 as 10.751.479, 13.331.699, 13.51.258, 14.4971.49, 160.63, 163331.69, 20.50.5 and 22.50.5 respectively. In male groups the carrying angle has not been increases with age. Knowledge of the carrying angle helps in the assessment of difference of angulations in male and female and also, elbow joint deformity and its management.
