Adults who are Overweight (CDC)
The percentage of adults who are overweight according to the Body Mass Index (BMI). For adults, overweight and obesity ranges are determined by using weight and height to calculate a number called the "body mass index" (BMI). BMI is used because, for most people, it correlates with their amount of body fat. An adult who has a BMI between 25 and 29.9 is considered overweight. An adult who has a BMI of 30 or higher is considered obese.
Measurement Period: 2007
