What's the average height for women? How that affects weight

Everyone's body size and shape go through changes over the years.

While height increases at a slower rate, weight increases at a faster rate.

An American woman of 20 years is about 5 foot 4 inches (about 63.7 inches) tall as of 2022.

At the same time, the average weight is about 170 pounds.

The average body mass index (BMI) for American women is 29.6 as of 2022.

This makes the United States the 40th tallest nation in the world.

According to studies, height and weight are directly related to the quality of nutrition in infancy and childhood.

Experts suggest Americans are experiencing slow growth due to lack of access to enough nutrients.
