Obesity Data and Tools
Local Authority Adult Excess Weight Prevalence Data
New data are now available for prevalence of excess weight (overweight including obesity, BMI ≥25kg/m2) in adults (age 16 and over) at local authority level. These data are an indicator in the Public Health Outcomes Framework (PHOF) Health Improvement domain. We have also produced a set of supporting indicators for adult underweight, healthy weight, overweight, and obesity prevalence.
NCMP Local Authority Child Data Profile
Data from the National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP) 2006/07 to 2012/13 are now available in a new online data tool. Prevalence of underweight, healthy weight, overweight, and obesity for children in Reception (age 4-5 years) and Year 6 (age 10-11 years) can be examined at local authority level. Data quality indicators are also available in the tool, for example rate of participation in the NCMP.
