The line chart illustrates how the average heights of people had varied in four developed countries over two centuries from 1775 to 1975. Generally, the heights underwent an overall upward trend across all the countries.
Initially, Americans ranked the top, with an average height of approximately 168 cm which was immediately followed by British (166cm) while people from Denmark and France were slightly higher than 160 cm.
Over the following seven and a half decades, in spite of some minor ups and downs, the average heights had almost remained unchanged in all the countries except France where people’s height kept rising in the latter half of the period. This exceeded that of the Danish in around 1850.
After that, the trend in the USA and the UK showed great similarity though at a slightly different rate. They saw an ongoing rise until 1975, when the height equaled to approximately 180 cm. The Danish grew considerably and became the tallest at almost 190 cm, standing in remarkable contrast with French who were merely 173 cm.
In short, while Americans and the British were equally high in the end, the gap between Danes and Frenchmen had widened.
