    I would be careful, some of the numbers are derived from self reported surveys and some are based on sample survey measurements.

    to the extent that it can be trusted Im kind of a big deal ... in the 96th percentile.

    About 25 years ago, my sister (5-7) visited Sweden with her Swedish neighbour. She expected her main impression of the local population to be a high percentage of blonde hair but it was actually how tall people were in general. I'm 6-2 and this suggests that 1 in 23 males in the UK are taller than me. In Sweden it would be 1 in 5. In Indonesia it is 1 in over 37,000 (which is more than the population of the town I live in).
