Try the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS). They have what you are looking for, for a large set of countries. On top of that you will in part be able to identify family ties, and you can even get access to geo-coded data. The data has answers to an extensive questionnaire.
You have to "apply" to get the data. But that is just a formality -- even ...
It sounds like you're looking for a line listing. There are no case data available for this outbreak, but like Skram said, I collect and maintain data from various sources on github. Sierra Leone and Liberia release some case data on the province/county level; Liberia's data is quite good. The WHO used to include town names for Guinea, but it has since ...

Okay, this is a very specific dataset for the !Kung San people, but it has height, weight, sex, and age fields. Reference was found in McElreath:
"The data contained in data (Howell1) are partial census data for
the Dobe area !Kung San, compiled from interviews conducted by Nancy
Howell in the late 1960s."

Not sure if my list is better (or worse), because I think it has a lot to do with Andrew's question about national/state levels. If Andrew says it's cool, I'll just have him update his answer with these links:

Let's try to follow the sources one by one:
Trust for America's Health has obesity ranks (sense probably inverted compared to the graphic) and the proportion (%) of obese people per state, directly linked from their homepage.
U.S. Census American Community Survey should have this data. They have per-state transport mode usage statistics.

Your question is so general it's hard to be sure I'm answering it correctly. More detail would be quite helpful. Here's a stab, though:
If you're looking for datasets that are already open and are fairly standard social science data, I would look at what ICPSR holds. They have several datasets, in particular this one, contributed by Jens Ludwig at UChicago.

At this point Wikipedia will have most of the information but not yet machine readable. For a broad data-request on global lockdowns of varying degree, and for an ongoing event, I can't image a machine readable dataset yet.
One example would be using school closures, for which there is a ...

NPR has been developing a crowdsourced database of accessible playgrounds in the US. The data is downloadable as CSV or JSON. The license for the data isn't clearly stated, but the language suggests that they want it to be freely used.
Here is a set of individual weights and heights for 25,000 children in Hong Kong. There is no age or gender information, though, which does limit its usefulness.
From the same site, there is a table of heights, weights and ages for 1035 baseball players, which is a highly unrepresentative sample of the general population, but possibly interesting?
