Find the average male human height of almost any country by using our interactive map below. Simply hover over the countries to find the average height.

For the purposes of color coding the map, the heights are displayed in cm rather than feet and inches. This allows for color formatting of the map which has been designed to show the taller countries in dark green, and the smaller countries in light green. The darker the shade, the taller that particular country is.

It's interesting to see an illustration of the countries in the East around the pacific such as China, Japan, Korea and Philippines that have a much smaller height on average.

What happened to the African countries? Would love to see the heights there.

The problem is that there are no reliable statistics for those countries at the moment.

Serbia with Holland. Why so tall?

Actually the average Finnish male is 181 cm tall according to 2010 study by professor Leo Dunkel.

Croats are the tallest people in the world: 185.6cm. Croatia belongs to the Dinarides(diradic). Serbia does not belong to the Dinarides so Serbs are not so tall.

Croats are average or short. Serbs are much taller because they are much more dinaric.

Most of the data on the map above are non-sensical. Serbia 185.6 cm?! You erroneously extrapolated data from the Dinaric Alps to a neighbouring country! Other data concern university students or other privileged populations. For example, the official height of young Iranian men born between 1980-84 is 173.4 cm, not 178.7 cm (Google "Secular Trend of Height Variations in Iranian Population Born between 1940 and 1984"). And so on and so on.
