What’s the average height for men and women? I’m just kind of curious how I stack up.
This is a stat that’s tough to definitively measure — unlike a simple census, which counts people from house to house for a reasonably accurate population number, this one relies on studies with limited sample sizes from varying populations. However, enough studies have been conducted worldwide to give us an idea of the average human height.
We’ll go ahead and list worldwide and a few selected countries, with links to the source material for the information.
If you’d like to see more countries, there’s a great chart at Disabled-World.com listing a good cross section of countires from around the world.
