AbstractThe Interdigital ridge counts areas in the palms of three generations in Karbala province were studied respectively . The study includes a sample consisting of (300 individuals) divided as follows: 100 individuals born during the 70s , 100 individual born during the 80s and 100 individuals born during the 90s (50 individuals for each sex) to know the effect of migration from different provinces in Iraq to Karbala city. Differences among various variables have been found when comparing samples of each sex , when comparing the sexes of each generation, when comparing the variables in the right hand with its counterparts in the left hand and for each generation and sex alone. Some of these differences have reached the significant level while the others have not when using t- test for comparison . As regards the possession of the right hand of more ridge counts than the left hand and for each variable alone, all the results referred to a decrease in the number of right hand ridge counts compared with the left hand for the two variables a-b, b-c where the rate was less than 50%( except for the 80s male sample for the variables b-c). As regards the variables c-d, the number of ridge counts in the right hand was higher than that of the left hand with a high percentage (more than 50%) and for all samples (except for the 70s female samples.
