what the average girl looks like...

So there's a study going on by Psychologists at the University of Aberdeen (Scotland) to try and find the most average face for each different part of the world. Currently each area is divided into a combination of country/region based on population and other factors. This research is to be used for

From the website:
We're interested in how people read faces and the ways in which this relates to experiences they have during their life.

We carry out tests to assess the characteristics people find attractive in faces and voices. We use the answers to the questionnaires to see how things like lifestyle relate to your preferences for the faces and voices. Summaries of our findings will be posted on this website after we have finished collecting data for each experiment.

Here's a sample below.
