Average Heights and Weights for American Women
This data set gives the average heights and weights for American women aged 30–39.
The data set appears to have been taken from the American Society of Actuaries Build and Blood Pressure Study for some (unknown to us) earlier year.
The World Almanac notes: “The figures represent weights in ordinary indoor clothing and shoes, and heights with shoes”.
