Are all doors 80" tall now?

I'm looking online at doors and they're all supposedly 80" tall. Is that the actual length of the door itself? All of the doors in my house are more like 79 1/2".

80" is the so called standard. However anything from 78 to 80 should be OK for a new door install. Most storm doors will have an adjustable bottom sweep. An entrance door will come prehung for an 80" standard.
