Where Do Overweight Children Live?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Overweight status and obesity have increased dramatically among both adults and children in the past two decades (CDC 2003). While these increases have been well-documented, much less is known about how these outcomes vary by place, particularly for children. In this brief, we describe adolescent outcomes at the state level. This brief represents a first step in a larger project that eventually assesses the links between state policies and child health outcomes.
