Height-Weight Charts

Height-weight charts, as well as ideal body weight (IBW) calculations based on your height are also available. However, charts are based on heights and weights reported to life insurance for statistical purposes. These may be an inaccurate representation of the population, they are also outdated, and do not provide scientific risks associated with different weight ranges.

The ideal body weight (IBW) calculations do account for gender and and body type, such as small, medium, or large body frame (somewhat subjective), but they do not take age or ethnicity into account.
