Luo et al developed a number of equations to predict target height for a child based on parental height. The authors are from the University of Hong Kong and the University of Goteborg (Sweden).
target height for child in cm == (a * (value in cm)) + b
Value in cm
The mid-parental height equation was the most accurate. The mid-parental height appears to be the mean of the mother's and father's heights.
