Metropolitan Life Table

In 1943, the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company introduced their standard height-weight tables for men and women. The tables were revised slightly in 1983. They were called "desirable" weights, which would indicate those persons with the lowest mortality rates4. However, the phrase "ideal weight5" gradually became associated with these tables in common usage, even though the word "ideal" was not specifically published with the tables.
