Global trends in Children
Global overweight prevalence in children Prior 1990 to date
Notes for researchers
The maps illustrate the change in childhood overweight by gender over time. The countries are selected on the appropriateness and availability of the data. These slides are for illustration purposes only. The surveys are not strictly comparable because of differences in age range and methodology. Due to data availability and limitations, in this instance the cut of point used for overweight varies. With the limited data available, prevalence’s are not age standardised.
