Research Domain Information

Release Date:

October 1, 2015

Definition

Height is the distance from the top of the participant’s head to the heels of his or her feet (i.e., the vertical length). This self-reported measure asks about height at 25 years of age.

Purpose

Stature is an indicator of general body size and bone length. This measure can also serve as a proxy for nutritional status during development. It is used to assess stature and estimate height loss in older adults (aged 50 years or older).

Selection Rationale

The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2007-2008 protocols were selected as best practice methodology and are the most widely used protocols to assess height.
