Dear all

I have a database which includes measurements for the foot length of male
and female candidates between the ages of 10 and 14 from most parts of the
world from 14 researchers. According to my database, the average length of
24.4cm (as given in the post from Danik Lafond ) is the same as for a 13
year old male.

If this is the quoted length for an average person (50th percentile) then it
seems to be short in relation to the data that I have. Of course this
depends on where (demographically) the data was collected. It may be of
course be that the quoted length is not for a 50th %ile but for another
percentile...
