    Objective: This report presents anthropometric reference data for the U.S. population in 2011–2014.

    Methods: Body measurements were obtained from 19,151 participants in the 2011–2014 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). Measurements included weight, height, recumbent length, circumferences, limb lengths, and sagittal abdominal diameter (SAD).

    Results: Weighted population means, standard errors of the means, and selected percentiles of body measurement values are reported. Body measurement results are shown by sex and age, as well as race and Hispanic origin in adults.

    Conclusions: These latest NHANES data show the distribution of weight, height, body mass index, circumferences, lengths, and SAD in the U.S. population.
