Dear Readers

I want to calculate z-scores of adult male and female heights of
different ages using reference population standards (e.g. healthy
western populations). This is readily done for children, but I am not
clear what distribution parameters to use for adults. I can see some
debate about changing adult heights in western populations, and also
differences by ethnicity and income, so population parameters (such as
from NHANES) would not seem suitable.

All suggestions welcome.

Richard
