Population height = well-being?

| | Comments (1)

An interesting article from the New Yorker looks at recent studies of the height of populations. It turns out that average height seems to be a good indicator of general well-being in a country, and a more even distribution of wealth makes for a taller country. (I'd like to see some data on Canadian height, but haven't found any yet.)

It is an interesting article, and I recognize that these guys have done lotsa research and all, but how do they explain such giant Crees? (or "Tall" Cree as some refer to them in Alberta)
