I was just reading through an old teen magazine (January edition of 'Dolly', if you really must know) and it had an article in their 'Body Confidence Club' section about the average heights/weights of teenage girls in different countries. I thought you might be interested. I don't have a scanner but I have typed up the figures.

Metric
Australia - 164.3cms, 63kgs
USA - 162.8cms, 61kgs
UK - 164.2cms, 58.9kgs
Japan - 157.9cms, 53.3kgs
India - 152.4cms, 36.8kgs

Imperial
Australia - 5.39ft, 138.60lbs
USA - 5.34ft, 134.20lbs
UK - 5.39ft, 129.58lbs
Japan - 5.18ft, 117.26lbs
India - 5.00ft, 80.96lbs

And just out of curiosity I checked what this translated to in BMIs:
Australia - 23.3
USA - 23.0
UK - 21.8
Japan - 21.4
India - 15.8
