Overweight / Obesity by socio-economic status

These maps provide data for overweight and obesity prevalence according to differences in socio-economic status of the household or neighbourhood.  

This includes measures of occupational or employment status of the head of household, household income levels, or neighbourhood deprivation using indicators such as numbers of households claiming welfare benefits and child support payments.

You can see detailed reports for any country for which we have data.   The focus was initially on Europe but has been expanded to worldwide, please note the maps are still being populated with data especially the child maps.   If you have data you would like to see included on these maps please email obesity@worldobesity.org with details.
