A recent study by economics professors Nicola Persico and Andrew Postlewaite, and graduate student Dan Silverman indicates that a boys height at age 16 is a significant determinant of his future salary. The study of more than 2,000 men in the U.S. workforce found that taller teens later earned as much as 15 percent more than shorter teens, regardless of their heights as adults.
