Different people have different step sizes or strides. You really have to measure by counting steps while walking a measured course. It will also change a little over different terrain.

Most adults are probably between 2.5 feet and 3 foot strides. As there are 5280 feet/mile, this gives between 5280/3 = 1760 steps per mile and 5280/2.5 = 2112 steps per mile. A few people are outside this range.
