Adult Obesity Data

In the BRFSS survey, obese is defined as body mass index (BMI) greater than or equal to 30.0; BMI was calculated from self-reported weight and height (weight [kg]/ height [m²]).

Respondents reporting weight of less than 50 pounds or greater than or equal to 650 pounds; height less than 3 feet or greater than or equal to 8 feet; or BMI less than 12 or greater than or equal to 100 were excluded. Pregnant respondents were also excluded.

Measures are defined above the visualization. Additional help can be found in the Help Section.
