The crude prevalence rate of obesity is defined as the ratio of respondents that are 18 years or older who have a body mass index (BMI) of 30.0 kg/m2 or greater over the total number of respondents in the study (excluding those who refused to answer or those whose information was unknown”). Respondents were excluded if their height was less than 3 ft or equal to/greater than 8 ft; they weighed less than 50 lbs or more than 650 lbs; they had a BMI of less than 12 kg/m2 or 100 kg/m2 and greater; and/or were pregnant.Prevalence data are derived from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) 2012.The 500 Cities Project seeks to provide city- and census tract-level small area estimates for chronic disease risk factors, health outcomes, and clinical preventive service use for the largest 500 cities in the United States.Data source: CDC (Division of Population Health, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion)Date: 2015
