What percentage of the average of the human body is water?

Infants are about 80%, adult men are 70%, and adult women are 60%. The difference between men and women has to do with body fat content which is higher for women and fat, or adipose tissue, displaces water, the amount in their tissues is the same as men, but the overall ratio to their entire body weight is lower as a result.
