I used the table “How many people are over a certain height?” to calculate the figures you requested in your question. http://www.tallpages.com/uk/ukstatist.php#usaci The following figure tells you the partition of people that are as tall as, or taller than the named height. USA Males; 6'3" (1m91): 0.0146. That means that 14.6 of 1,000 or 146 of 10,000 males in the USA are 6’3” and taller. Total Males: 138,053,563 1.46% of 138,053,563 = 2,015,582 2,015,582 males are 6’3” or taller USA Females; 5'10" (1m78): 0.0078 That means that 7.8 of 1,000 or 78 of 10,000 females in the USA are 5’10” and taller.
