  • 2. Obesity Trends Among U.S. Adults between 1985 and 2008 <ul><li>Definitions: </li></ul><ul><li>Obesity: Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or higher. </li></ul><ul><li>Body Mass Index (BMI): A measure of an adult’s weight in relation to his or her height, specifically the adult’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of his or her height in meters. </li></ul>
  • 3. Obesity Trends Among U.S. Adults between 1985 and 2008 <ul><li>Source of the data: </li></ul><ul><li>The data shown in these maps were collected through CDC’s Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS). Each year, state health departments use standard procedures to collect data through a series of telephone interviews with U.S. adults. </li></ul><ul><li>Prevalence estimates generated for the maps may vary slightly from those generated for the states by BRFSS (http://aps.nccd.cdc.gov/brfss) as slightly different analytic methods are used. </li></ul>
  • 4. <ul><li>In 1990, among states participating in the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, ten states had a prevalence of obesity less than 10% and no states had prevalence equal to or greater than 15%. </li></ul><ul><li>By 1999, no state had prevalence less than 10%, eighteen states had a prevalence of obesity between 20-24%, and no state had prevalence equal to or greater than 25%. </li></ul><ul><li>In 2008, only one state (Colorado) had a prevalence of obesity less than 20%. Thirty-two states had a prevalence equal to or greater than 25%; six of these states ( Alabama, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia ) had a prevalence of obesity equal to or greater than 30%. </li></ul>
