Changes to heights over time and within countries paints a picture of economic development.
One major advantage of using height as a proxy is the availability of data in the pre-statistical period.
Human height is determined by a combination of genetics and environmental factors making it an active area of research in both the sciences and social sciences.
Recent breakthroughs in sequencing the human genome have allowed identification of 697 genetic variants that influence the height of an individual.
