Pretty cool calculator that tells you where you are on the global fat scale along with the mean weights of other countries.

http://www.bbc.com/news/health-18770328

My results:
Below average: A lower BMI than 99% of females aged 18-29 in the USA
Below average: A lower BMI than 96% of females aged 15-29 in the world
Most like someone in Vietnam

Just for fun I put in my HW. These were the results:
Below average: A lower BMI than 77% of females aged 15-29 in the USA
Above average: A higher BMI than 60% of females aged 15-29 in the world
Most like someone from Austria

I got below 99% for the US, and below 95% for the world. I'm most like someone from Vietnam.

Fun fact from the site:
"Did you know?
If everyone in the world had the same BMI as you, it would remove 111,151,487 tonnes from the total weight of the world's population "

Thanks so much for sharing this site! It's both really interesting and motivational/inspirational! I feel like the numbers really puts things into perspective. Having a lower BMI than 82% of the population in my country is definitely a confidence boost, especially since being fat isn't exactly the norm here. I mean, sure there are fat people but I've always thought that the average girl in my age, in my country, is pretty slim. Also got Ethiopia.

I also have a lower BMI than 97% of the women in my country, which made me pretty happy.
