Average Weight for Women in the US:
The average weight for women in the United States is around 170 pounds (77 kg) according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This average weight is based on data collected from 2015-2016 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) and applies to women aged 20 and over.
It’s important to note that this average weight is based on a wide range of body sizes and shapes, and it’s not appropriate to use this number to judge an individual’s weight or health. Body mass index (BMI) is a more accurate measure of health, as it takes into account both height and weight. A healthy BMI is typically between 18.5 and 24.9, and it’s important to consult with a healthcare professional to determine a healthy weight for your specific height and body composition.
