    Its weird that the average height for women is 5ft 4, yet at 5ft 2 I seem to be considered 'tiny'
    Yeah I wonder why that is especially 2 inches above average which is 5ft 6 isn't considered amaaaazingly tall.

    No they're not. Proof: that the average is 5ft 3.5 :woo:
    That figure is for all UK women 16+

    The figure for UK women aged 16-24, which is what I imagine most people using this forum will fall into, is 5' 4.3"

    So why did you choose to include only females heights that are above the average female height? Bit illogical, no? That's like saying 'what's the average male height?' and only having 6'0", 6'1", 6'2", 6'3", and 6'4" as options.

    Having read the OP's post several times, I'm not really sure what the OP was asking to be perfectly honest. :dontknow:

    Given the influx of Asians, UK average height is set to fall. Not trying to stereotype, I think it's true. Well, depending on whether that influx has a greater effect on the mean than the increasing tallness of each generation.

    Wouldn't read too much into that, we have already received a huge amount of asian immigrants, and think about Polish immigrants coming in, I believe they are meant to be tall.

    I'm pretty sure I read the average height for women is 5ft 4-5. I remember it because that is my height. Your poll doesn't even have 5ft 4 on it .

    The actual average male height here is definitely not as high as 6ft. I don't even think that the average for the 90s born generation is as high as that. I'd put overall male height average at 5ft 9 and our generation 5ft 11.

    I'm asian and I'm 6'4 :hmmm:

    My cousins consist of 6'1, 6' and 5'11.

    My best mates (who are also asian) are 6'7, 6'5, 6'3, 6'

    SO HAH
