    Post Polish Stature

    Latest surveys tell us that the average stature of a young Pole is 177.8 cm (back in the 1930s it was 166cm).

    However, young Poles coming from middle and upper class families average over 180cm.

    Polish anthropologists predict that the country's population has not yet reached it's maximum average height, which will keep going up as living standards rise.

    However, it's worth noting that Poles are on average already taller than many European nations which have a much higher standard of living.

    By the by, Lithuanians have become one of the tallest European populations since WWII. They now average over 180cm, even though they are much poorer than western European nations. When their living standards rise they will get even taller.

    I am not of the opinion that height means anything. A negro can be tall.
    Japanese are not tall, but they are very intelegent. If Polish are taller than other european people, what is the point on pointing it out?

    I guess he was just pointing out that the common stereotype of lower class people being shorter has many exceptions.

    Short stature was always one of the the defining charcteristics of the East Baltid sub types, has it not? Well, if the East Baltid sub types are no longer short, then isn't that relevant?

    East Baltid subtypes, yes. But the article says poland. There are many sub-types in poland other than East Baltid. And many mixed subraces.

    So what you mean is that the sub-racial composition of Poland is changing? Well isn't that relevant?

    Well the comments about Lithuania are more relevant to the East Baltic type, since it's predominantly EB, >> 50%. If Lithuania averages over 180 cm, that calls the traditional view of EB stature into question.
