How old, tall, and weigh to sit in the front seat in Arizona?

Okay, I'm trying to find out how old, how tall, and how much you have to weigh to sit in the front seat. I live in Arizona, if that makes a difference (I think it does).
I've gotten for age 12 and 13, for height I've gotten 4.5 feet and 5 feet, and for weight I've gotten 65, 70, and 75.
I don't know which is right, so I need to know.

The federal guidelines indicate 4'9" & 80 lbs as the height/weight ratio & the age limit average is around 7 or 8 yrs old.

AZ does not have a weight limit & the child must be in an approved car seat or booster seat only if they are younger than 5 years old.

If the child is still in a booster seat, they could ride in the front seat of a vehicle strapped into their booster seat with the passenger side air bag turned off or deactivated. The safest place for a small child is in the back seat, but that's not going to always be possible to place them in the back seat.
