Trends in prevalence of obesity in adults from selected countries around the globe
Notes for researchers
The table highlights the trend % prevalence of obesity (BMI ≥ 30 kg/m²) in adults from selected countries around the globe. The countries are selected on the appropriateness and availability of the data. The surveys are not strictly comparable because of differences in age range and methodology. With the limited data available, prevalence’s are not age standardised.
