Hite (hi) is a unit of length approximately equal to the average height of an adult human — 5.5 feet, 66 inches, 792 lignes, 1.83 yards, 16.5 hands, or 167.64 centimeters. This unit is ironic for being a homophone of height. The unit is used mainly to specify human heights, as well as heights of other things like trees and buildings. The average height of adult men in the United States is 1.052 hi (5'9"5‴, 176.4 cm). The average height of adult women in the United States is 0.967 hi (5'3"10‴, 162.1 cm). So the average height in both adult sexes living in the United States is 1.008 hi (5'6"7‴, 169.0 cm). The average height around the world is estimated to be slightly below 1 hite. For example, PlanetStar stands 0.9831 hi (5'4"10.6‴, 164.80 cm) tall, which is relatively short for an adult man. Hopefully in the future, this unit shall pass on to the literature so hite will be as commonly used to determine human heights as feet/inches or centimeters.
