This study examines 10 fingerprints of each of 82 Turkish citizens the ages between 18 and 70 and presents the results of blood group distribution of people from only fingerprints. The fingerprint patterns are first divided into 3 categories such as loop, whorl and arches. The blood group distribution was then analyzed according to these categories. It was found that the loop-type patterns were found more intensively than other patterns, AB blood group had little relation among loop-type patterns and loop rate for A blood group is higher. The results were compared to other types of patterns. The results were also demonstrated that the relation among fingerprint feature vectors and blood groups might exist and blood group can be achieved from fingerprints. It is expected that the proposed analysis might help to develop systems and various new applications such as determination of blood group of a criminal from a fingerprint found on crime scene and determination of blood group of a person when he/she borns fastly and without any cost.
