Obesity Factsheets

Source: NICHQ
Published: 2011

These Obesity Factsheets were created to provide national, state, and county-based data regarding childhood overweight and obesity prevalence and the environmental and behavioral factors that influence health. They are designed to make relevant population data more readily available to local advocates and decision makers.

State Factsheets

These factsheets offer information specific to your state on a variety of policy issues impacting (and being impacted by) childhood obesity, such as overall prevalence rates compared with other states and disparities/variations by race, insurance, and income level.

Data Source:

  • The 2007 National Survey of Children’s Health and analysis by the CAHMI’s Data Resource Center for Child and Adolescent Health (www.childhealthdata.org).

County Factsheets

These factsheets compare healthy lifestyle indicators in one county to those of the entire state and its best-performing counties. They offer information on overall population health as well as socioeconomic factors that determine the resources available for health.

Data Sources:

  • The 2010 County Health Rankings, which are compiled by the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute through a collaboration with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (http://www.countyhealthrankings.org/).
  • The 2010 Food Environment Atlas, which is a project of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Economic Research Service (ERS) that sources data from the U.S. Census and the USDA (http://www.ers.usda.gov/foodatlas/).
