Shows it's just under 5'10, the same as the Australian one above. You can't rely on your own observation, you see a few 6'+ guys and it skews your view of what's normal. Every single survey shows it's around 5'9-5'10, and that the last generation hasn't magically shot up.

I was talking white guys, not including ethnics. Also the average height at parties or social events is higher cus shorter ppl stay in more, so 5ft11, plus 1 inch when going out at night makes average 6foot.

So many assumptions, biases and overestimations. Average is ~5'10 for young white males as shown in innumerable studies. There aren't enough ethnics in those studies to alter the results significantly, and not all ethnics are short anyway. This is a strange sort of reverse coping.

Average height for whites from 2003-2006 for 20-39 was 179cm. Now 18-22 of 2015 for white would be at least 180cm. Now at a party or social event, most short guys DONT go, and most tall guys DO go, bumping the 50th percentile to 6foot. These are the men your competing with, no coping going on here.


Exactly, average is ~5'10 as I said, and that particular study has a higher result than most. Average height does not increase 1cm in a decade, the average is still almost exactly the same (often shown as lower than that in more recent studies). Take a look at the study (http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nhsr/nhsr010.pdf) the difference between the mean height of everyone and just whites is about 1cm, and that's with a white to non-white ratio of about 1.2, which does not reflect real life. The amount non-whites bring down the average in other studies is very small, certainly no where near enough to dismiss them because of ethnics.

Perhaps taller people do go out more, but not that much. I've been out a few times in the last couple of months and the average height is definitely not 6', it's pretty much the same as any other situation, there are <5'10 guys everywhere.

Here's a more recent and larger study: http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/series/sr_11/sr11_252.pdf

It shows the mean of the 20-29 white males (same as above) is 178.4cm. That's probably closer to the truth, it certainly hasn't increased. That study actually has significantly more non-whites (who are largely ~170cm) than whites, yet the combined mean is still under 2cm less than just whites. Racial differences in studies of the general population are negligible.
