Average height of Switzerland people according to gender

For genetic reasons there are differences between men and women when taking into account different values of the human body such as height, so to analyze whether the height of a person is around the average, you must take into account the racial factors or origin (country of origin, in this case Switzerland) and the gender:

  • Male: 178.4 cm
  • Female: 163.5 cm

If a person from Switzerland is not 171 cm tall, is he/she short?

Not necessarily, as 171 centimeters is an average height of people from Switzerland. In order to have a correct assessment of whether a height is suitable for a person, family history and some medical variables such as possible diseases, for example, must be taken into account.

Therefore, a person from 171 cannot be defined as tall or short by reaching a body size above or below 171, this assessment should be made by a medical professional.
