What's the average height of males and females?

Preferably in the US, but I suppose answering for your country wouldn't hurt.

What's the average height for a male and female?

I've looked it up and for females, it says anything from 5'4 to 5'6 and for guys anywhere from 5'7 to 5'10.

Updates:
I'm just looking for any legitimate sources(besides wikipedia) that someone can post. Didn't think this Q was rocket science but whatever

  • Do you just want us to list our heights because what you looked up isn't consistent?

    If so: 5'10"...I'm just average :/

  • That range sounds about right for the US and Western Europe.

  • If you want some sources you can read the bottom of the wiki article for the actual studies. Then search those studies in your university library for the actual statistical results.

    • The wiki data is referencing publications from the United States Census Bureau and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

  • Ya know..I have no clue..not going to go stat-looking either..all I know is that I am fine with short or tall..in spite of your stuff about areolae & no oral...personality conflict is what would drive us apart..but you would be a very good friend of mine in the brick-n-mortar world..(:(:(:

  • The ones you looked up seem pretty accurate to me, that's what I've most often heard.
