serena lembach Posted over 1 year ago Are one of the reason that more people who are tall -or large- are more successful than not due to primal reasons? Hi Peter, 178.2 cm (5' 10.2") US men, 164.1 cm (5' 4.6") US women. I wonder if height has decreased in general with the increase in Asian and Mexican population? Seems so to me as someone who graduated from High school in the late 60's. I think politics is subject to the problem of 24-hour 'news' stations who use that repetitive message to support an agenda. Then there is the internet, blogs, etc. I am about to leave for tango practica.; in 4" heels :-)..
