Average Height by Country

A person’s height is measured as the distance from their head to foot while standing upright. Height can play a pivotal role in one’s health. For instance, a shorter height often leads to longer life expectancy, lower blood pressure, and a less likely chance of acquiring cancer.

There are various reasons as to why geographical location affects an individual’s height. Firstly, due to some reports better environmental conditions foster taller people. Another reason may be due to the availability of food resources and the nutritional value of said food.

One’s height is measured using a stadiometer, which may be in meters/centimeters or feet/inches. Countries that use the metric system will use the former; while those that use the imperial system will use the latter. Only three countries still use the imperial system: Liberia, Myanmar, and the United States.
