I have been seeing a lot of articles about which states have the lowest and highest adult and childhood obesity rate. This is because the National Survey of Children's Health has just come out with the latest 2007 figures. The figures for children are based on their bmi percentile score.
Where does your state stand? Look at the percentage of kids with 85% (overweight) and 95%(obese) and add those up. That will tell you what the percentage of kids that are overweight and obese in your state.
