… half an inch seems common.
Average is approximately 1”.
In this poll the average fatpad is .95”. I arrived at that by choosing the inbetween of each range and multiplying it by the number of votes in each category. Each range is calculated that way, and then the inches of each range are totaled up together and that total sum dvided by total number of votes in the entire poll. For instance, the inbetween of the range 1.75-1.99 is 1.87. I multiplied 1.87 by the number of votes it received. For the 3>” category I guessed with 3.25”. Since there were two votes in that category it had 6.50 inches (3.25 x 2). I added those categories together with all the other categories and that overall inches total was then divided by the total of all votes.
How thick is your fat pad?
This poll didn’t give ranges so I used the numbers in the poll, of course. It shows a 1.03 average fatpad.

Also, Dr. Wessells’ study showed a 1.16” average fatpad but he noted that his participants were in general heavier than usual.
