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.
