Yes, most pedometers enable you to set your specific stride length.

But rather than trying to measure a single step (which can get distorted with stopping and starting), I'd recommend measuring out a significant distance (1/2 mile plus) and counting how many steps. Fitness maps or mapmywalk.com are useful for this.

I'm 5'3" and have to take 2,400 steps for a mile (very short legs!)

My husband is about 6'1' and takes less than 2,000 for a mile (can't remember the exact number, maybe 1900ish?)

2,000 is a good estimate but might want to go a bit higher if you are on the shorter end, like me :)

Depending on the pedometer, there should be a setting where you can set the stride length so it's accurate as possible for your individual gait.

It depends on your stride, but yes, approximately 2,000 steps equals a mile for the average person. However, measuring would be your best bet.

It varies from person to person and depends on ones stride. At only 5 foot tall I have a shorter stride than someone taller so it takes more steps to equal a mile.

With my pedometer I had to measure my stride length and program that in.
