Average Male Height in Europe

The average height of males 21 years and older for European countries (with data for US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand included for comparison); height in centimeters.

Code:
1       Netherlands      181.0

2       Iceland          179.8
3       Norway           179.7

4       Sweden           179.3

5       Denmark          178.8

6       Finland          178.4
7       Czech Republic   178.3
8       Slovenia         178.1
9       Luxembourg       178.0

10      Croatia          177.6
11      Germany          177.4
12      Estonia          177.1
13      Austria          177.0

14      Belgium          176.6
15-16   Serbia           176.5
16-16   Switzerland      176.5

17      Poland           176.0

18      Greece           175.7
19      United Kingdom   175.4
20      Hungary          175.3
21-24   Ireland          175.0
22-24   Lithuania        175.0
23-24   Russia           175.0
24-24   Ukraine          175.0

25-26   France           174.1
26-26   Turkey           174.1

27      Italy            173.2

29-29   Romania          172.0
28-29   Spain            172.0

30      Portugal         170.5


For comparison:

        United States    176,4
        Australia        176,3

        New Zealand      175,5

        Canada           174.3
Significant gaps marked by newlines.

I extracted above data from:

http://forums.interbasket.net/showth...tific-research

All statistical data should be approached with caution, it is tempting however to note that the lowest levels of bitterness and hateful feelings are displayed in women's tennis forum generally by posters from those countries that are in the upper half of the list.

Re: Average Male Height in Europe

I don't get it? Why compare the data to Australia for example, our population is made up of a billion different ethnicities...so it doesn't really say anything about multi-cultural countries.

I agree with you. This is why I did not include the countries made mostly of "immigrants" in the tally. I provided the numbers for Australia, Canada, USA, and New Zealand solely for the curious.

Apparently the data were not available (no data for Bulgaria, Bosnia, Macedonia, Slovakia either). I am sure there is not much difference between Montenegro and Serbia. In my personal experience Serbs and Croats were generally taller and bigger than their Slavic peers to the North.

Re: Average Male Height in Europe
