Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity: Reports and Data

Data on obesity, nutrition, and physical activity come from a variety of sources. Many of the national databases are from self-reported data. Those are less reliable than data collected through physical measurements. However, self-reported methods are the easiest way to collect data on a large scale.

Standardized data exists for all states. Most of the reports below are from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). Some of these links allow you to compare Wisconsin data to other states.
