Stagnation of Heights Among Second-Generation U.S.-Born Army Personnel
The physical stature of a population is a useful supplementary indicator of the living standards of children and youth insofar as it is sensitive to income and medical care. It is, thus, somewhat of a conundrum that U.S. heights tended to stagnate between around the mid-1950s to the mid-1970s birth cohorts, an otherwise economically prosperous period. Because of the controversial nature of the finding based on the NHANES data sets we seek independent corroborating evidence. Copyright (c) 2008 by the Southwestern Social Science Association.
