Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity: Reports and Data
Wisconsin Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity Report
See what's in the 2013-2018 Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity State Plan for Surveillance.
Data on obesity, nutrition and physical activity come from a variety of sources.
Many of the national databases are from self-reported data, which are less reliable than data collected through physical measurements but are the easiest way to collect data on a large scale.
The reports below are primarily from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
