Where do the tallest people come from?

Looks like Europe takes the trophy in both genders. The tallest men on the planet come from the Netherlands, while the tallest women are from Latvia. The source for these numbers come from a massive international study that brought in data from 1,472 population surveys with height information on 18.6 million people.

The numbers spanned over a period of a 100-year period and included statistics on people who turned 18-years-old between 1914 and 2014.
