Question Poured concrete basement wall form sizes?

Trying to get an idea of what standard sizes are for poured concrete basement wall forms, in both widths and heights, so that when designing a basement wall, or any stem wall for that matter, it doesn't cause more labor and cost than is necessary. For example, if the concrete wall from top of footing to top of concrete wall shows 8'-4" high, is that going to be more labor and cost than a 8'-6" or 9' high wall? for width of walls, is it better to keep to certain dimensions. For example is 12' better than 13' or is 13' better than 13'-4", etc.?
