Staub, Kaspar; Rühli, Frank J; Woitek, Ulrich; Pfister, Christian (2011). The average height of 18- and 19-year-old conscripts (N=458,322) in Switzerland from 1992 to 2009, and the secular height trend since 1878. Swiss Medical Weekly, 141:w13238.

Abstract

While the increase in average height among Swiss conscripts (representative 90% of the male Swiss population) since the 19th century is usually attributed to improvements in living conditions, all of the factors contributing to the recent slowdown have yet to be identified.
