Hypodermic needles are available in a wide variety of outer diameters described by gauge numbers. Smaller gauge numbers indicate larger outer diameters.[1] Inner diameter depends on both gauge and wall thickness. The following chart shows nominal inner diameter and wall thickness for regular-wall needles.[1][2] Thin-wall needles (not shown) have identical outer diameters but larger inner diameters for a given gauge.

Needle wire gauge is derived from the Birmingham Wire Gauge. #1 = 18½ B.W.G.; #2 = 19 B.W.G., and so on to #14 = 31 B.W.G.
