Average Heights Per Country

April 15, 2019

What defines if we are short or tall? The average does. You might be short in your country but considered tall in another one. Hey, you can also be tall in your homeland but need elevator shoes somewhere else to reach the average height. In today’s post, we will tell you what are the average height for men and women in various countries. Where do you think that the tallest people are from? And the shortest people? We will figure it out now.

 

Top 3 tallest countries

 

-Bosnia and Herzegovina

This is where the tallest people in the world are. Bosnia and Herzegovina, in southeastern Europe, is one of the countries with the tallest men in the world: 6 ft 1/2 in (183.9 cm) is the average. You might doubt that these gentlemen would ever need height increasing shoes but there has been reported that people in some places in this country are even taller. The tallest women in the world are also born in Bosnia and Herzegovina, with an average of 5 ft 7 1/2 in (171.8 cm).

 

-Netherlands

In the Netherlands, in northwestern Europe, the average height for men also is 6 ft 1/2 in; but in centimeters, it is 183.8, just one millimeter apart from the average height in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Here, the average height for women is 5 ft 7 in (170.7 cm ).

 

-Montenegro

Montenegro is the third country with the tallest people in the world. It shares borders with Bosnia and Herzegovina, so we are not all that surprised it has super tall people. The average height for men is 6 ft 0 in (183.2 cm) and, for women, 5 ft 6 1/2 in (168.4 cm).

 

Top 3 countries with the shortest men

 

-Indonesia

Indonesia is one of the countries with the shortest men in the world. Located in southeast Asia, the average height for men in Indonesia is 5 ft 2 in (158 cm).

 

-India

The rural part of India, in South Asia, is the second home of the men with the second shortest average height:  5 ft 3 1/2 in (161.2 cm).

 

-Philippines

The third place goes to the Philippines, in southeast Asia, where the average height for men is 5 ft 3 1/2 in, 161.9 cm, just 7 millimeters apart from India’s average.

 

Top 3 countries with the shortest women

 

-Bolivia

On the other side of the globe, the honor to have the shortest women in the world goes to Bolivia, a central South American country. The average height for women here is 4 ft 8 in (142.2 cm). Did someone ask for hidden heel shoes?

 

-Indonesia

Again in the top three. Indonesia has the shortest men in the world and the second shortest women in the world. Women’s average height is 4 ft 10 in (147 cm).

 

-Guatemala

This central American country occupies the third spot. Here, the average height for women is 4 ft 10 in (147.3 cm).
