Where can I find norms for vertical jump?

There are several sources for this data. Keep in mind that the way in which a test is conducted, and the equipment being used will have an effect on results.
Example: A Yardstick or Vertec will give different results from a test done on a jump mat or force plate, because shoulder rotation allows a higher reach. Mechanical devices that rely on reach will have different results from mats etc, as the latter measures displacement of centre of mass.
