NCMP trends in children’s body mass index between 2006 to 2007 and 2016 to 2017: slide presentation

Details

The report explores trends in obesity, overweight, excess weight and underweight prevalence, as well as changes in mean BMI over time. It is aimed at local authorities and other organisations who want to examine detailed trends in child weight category prevalence over time, and how these vary by health inequality.

It looks at trends within different socioeconomic and ethnic groups to assess whether existing health inequalities are widening or shrinking.

The report is accompanied by a summary of main findings and a supplementary dataset.

The slide set presents key data on the trends in child body mass index from the NCMP between 2006 to 2007 and 2016 to 2017 in easy-to-understand charts and graphics. The slides can be used freely with acknowledgement to Public Health England.
