How Tall Are People From Different Countries?

Which country’s people are the tallest? In fact, we’re so different that we’ve created gender and racial constructs, generational lines, and map borders to make these differences more distinct. One of the most easily distinguished physical differences among human beings is height, which ranges from as small as 2’ 2.41” to as tall as 8’ 3” across the board. Ever wonder what the average height for each country in the world is? Then watch our new video!

SUMMARY:
– Our early hominin ancestors lived in conditions very different from ours, though. They first emerged in the Lower Paleolithic Era as early as 3.5 million years ago when their environment was recovering from an ice age that produced a drier climate on the savannas of East Africa.
– The australopithecines were still small and ape-like, though, only growing to about 3’ 11” for females and 4’ 7” for males on average.
– On average, taller people also tend to have higher salaries and higher levels of education. However, these extra inches also come with downsides, including an increased risk for developing certain cancers.
– The tallest women are from Latvia, the Netherlands, Estonia, and the Czech Republic. And it looks like Dutch and Danish men have been trying to outgrow each other!
– The shortest men and women in the world are the Pygmies of the Congo, and they only grow to an average of 4’ 5” and 4’ 1” respectively.
– Men in the Netherlands, as we said, have grown to an average height of 6’, while women in that country measure in at 5’ 7”.
– American men average 5’ 9”, whereas American women average 5’ 4”.
– Indian men also grow to an average of 5’ 5”, but Indian women only get to about 5’ even.
– Canadians are about as tall as Americans, with the men coming to 5’ 9” and the women coming to 5’ 5”.
– Russian men are also pretty tall, with their average height coming to about 5’ 10”; Russian women grow to an average of about 5’ 4”.
– Spanish and Argentinian men and women come out to an average of 5’ 8” and 5’ 3”, while Mexican men and women grow to about 5’ 7” and 5’ 1”.
– Egyptian men come to an average of about 5’ 7” — that sure is a popular height, right? — and Egyptian women come to an average of about 5’ 3”.
