Resumen


At the Graduate and Research School of the National School of Dentistry, National University of Mexico (UNAM) we developed several analytic and descriptive methods. A statistical study of skeletal classifi cation was undertaken with a sample of 428 patients subjected to orthodontic treatment. Age range of selected patients was 8-40 years. Data were collected according to gender, age and skeletal malocclusion in order to assess the epidemiological panorama. After statistical analysis, it was found among other data, that 53.3% of the sample was in skeletal class I, 64.7% were female and 52.08% was found to be in the 13 to 19 year age range
