Data on this page is based on CDC stature charts for age 20.
I feel like that age is a good approximation of what the adult population looks like, because
the growth curves really level off around age 16 for girls, 19 for boys.
Part of the reason I created this meme is that I, personally, am tall... 184cm. I know that's tall (for a woman) because every week or so,
some stranger points out that I'm tall, and asks me if I was aware of the fact. I'm sort of curious what the percentile threshold is for this, so to speak,
so leave your feedback here. How tall do you have to be before random people point it out? Do short people get told they're short? Do wide people
get told they're wide? (I'm guessing that's a big "no".) Feedback welcome!
