Trends in prevalence of obesity in adults from selected emerging countries

Notes for researchers

The table highlights trends in the % prevalence of obesity (BMI ≥ 30 kg/m²) in adults by gender.
The countries are selected on the appropriateness and availability of the data. The surveys are not strictly comparable because of differences in age range and methodology. Each country had data from at least three different time periods. With the limited data available, prevalence’s are not age standardised.
