The CTBUH Height & Data Committee was originally created to establish and, when necessary, provide guidance in the refinement of the official Height Criteria used to define, measure, and study tall buildings. However, more recently, this mandate has been widened to embrace other aspects of building data and measurement. The Committee has thus influenced many compelling research endeavors and prompted provocative conversations with the public about the nature of tall buildings and the trends surrounding them, in recent times. The committee meets on a regular basis to discuss the latest developments in the tall building industry and possible additions or revisions to the Criteria.

The Committee is composed of influential professionals involved in the architecture, engineering, planning, development and construction of tall buildings and urban habitat.

The CTBUH maintains a database of the world's tallest buildings as ratified by the Height Committee in The Skyscraper Center.
