That is assuming the exact heights are available.  For many of the 
problems we are concerned about, there will be values in the 
database, but we cannot assume they are correct.

The database may contain accurate height measures for some of the 
people, and either null values (height is unknown) or imputed values 
(a guess or inference based on other available data for the person) 
for some of the people.  Maybe the information is out of date.  If a 
person is 19 years old, we cannnot assume that a 6-year-old height 
measurement is accurate.  On the other hand, if the person is 30 
years old, then the height 6 years ago is probably fine.
