What's the tallest height you can be to be considered a midget

In some circles, a midget is the term used for a proportionate dwarf. However, the term has fallen into disfavor and is considered "offensive" by most people of short stature.

Such terms as dwarf, little person, LP, and person of short stature are all acceptable, but most people would rather be referred to by their name than by a label.

As per Little People of America (LPA), dwarfism as a medical or genetic condition that usually results in an adult height of 4'10" or shorter, among both men and women, although in some cases a person with a dwarfing condition may be slightly taller than that.

The average height of an adult with dwarfism is 4’0, but typical heights range from 2’8 to 4’8.

The most frequently diagnosed cause of short stature is achondroplasia, a genetic condition that results in disproportionately short arms and legs.
