Countries With the Shortest Women

This seemed obvious, but I searched and couldn't find any similar quizzes. Guess the top 20 countries in the world with the shortest people, based on the average height of adult females in the country.
Not a perfect list and not all countries are included. Sorry.

Now that there exists a "Countries with the Shortest People" quiz on the site, I decided to change the name of this to "Countries with the Shortest Women," since that was the data set I was using anyway.

I went with female height rather than male height or male/female height because for some reason there was more information available on females. Not every country is included, including some that I think for sure would make the list like Papua New Guinea. If I find more complete information I'll update the quiz.

I'd also have thought Papua New Guinea would be there because of the Pygmy people - but then they're so "isolated" that it's difficult compile statistics for them. I wonder if there's any information about the average penis size...

Wow, there's even a world map of the penis size! (http://www.targetmap.com/viewer.aspx?reportId=3073) I just don't know how trustworthy that is.. and what perverts created it ;)

haha.. see, told you so. I would make a quiz but I'm pretty sure it would be rejected by QM. My boobies quizzes didn't even get approved until I changed the word "boobs" to "breasts"... maybe if I titled the quiz "Countries by size of male reproductive apparatus"...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but what we usually call the pygmy people tend to refer to a certain population in Africa., though it may be generic.

Wikipedia says the following:

The term is primarily associated with the African Pygmies, the hunter-gatherers of the Congo basin (comprising the Bambenga, Bambuti and Batwa).[2] The term "pygmoid" is a traditional morphological racial category for the Central African Pygmies, considered a subgroup of the Negroid category.[3] The term "Asiatic Pygmies" has been used of the Negrito populations of Maritime Southeast Asia and other Australoid peoples of short stature.[4]

so it looks like Cedo is correct?

I was 6 feet tall when I was twelve. Some of my girlfriends have been under 5 feet, though.

and now 12. I'd say I was going to aim for a perfect score but I doubt that I'll ever meet anyone from Comoros or Malawi.

oh man.. I was just with a girl from Rwanda.. I came back here thinking I could claim to have checked off one more... forgot that it was Malawi on the list, not Rwanda. I've still never met anyone from Malawi. Darn it.
