Probabilistic Sex Diagnosis (DSP) is a method developed at PACEA for determining sex using ten measurements of the hip-bone. Based on a large sample of 2040 individuals with varied geographic origins, the DSP tool was originally available in the form of an Excel macro.

The tool has recently been upgraded to an intuitive, standalone graphic interface compatible with Linux, Mac OS and Windows and downloadable at This version replaces the now obsolete Excel spreadsheet.
