No Change in Obesity for Adults or Children in 2009-10
A newly published Data Brief from the National Center for Health Statistics showed several key findings:
- More than one-third of adults and almost 17% of youth were obese in 2009–2010.
- There was no change in the prevalence of obesity among adults or children from 2007–2008 to 2009–2010.
- Obesity prevalence did not differ between men and women.
- Adults aged 60 and over were more likely to be obese than younger adults.
