This paper explores the relationship between height and its explanatory variables, explicitly paying attention to dynamics involved in the velocity of growth. We establish that the relationship is characterized by a changing lag pattern. We try to illustrate this with recently published data on the nineteenth century for the Netherlands. We find some evidence for changing lag patterns in the relationship between height and some measures of income and nutrition.
