How to read the graphs
Check the age (of the specimen that you wish to consider to be tall or not) along the bottom axis of the graph. Move directly vertical upwards monitoring the height in the axis on thesides of the chart. You will see the different percentile lines flowing through the graph. For example, the 95 line basically means 95% of the population is smaller than this height, therefore only 5% (or 1 in 20 people) are taller. Simple?
Have a go yourself, see how tall you are compared to your age. If you are older than 20, please use the same age as a 20 year old. It is is likely you have not grown from this age.
