      OBJECTIVE: To compare the prevalence of shortness, underweight, and overweight by using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 2000 and the World Health Organization (WHO) 2006 growth charts. These comparisons are undertaken with 2 sets of cutoff values.

      STUDY DESIGN: Data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 1999-2004 were used to calculate the prevalence estimates in US children aged 0 to 59 months (n = 3920). Cutoff values commonly used in the United ...

      IMPORTANCE: Between 1980 and 2000, the prevalence of obesity increased significantly among adult men and women in the United States; further significant increases were observed through 2003-2004 for men but not women. Subsequent comparisons of data from 2003-2004 with data through 2011-2012 showed no significant increases for men or women.

      OBJECTIVE: To examine obesity prevalence for 2013-2014 and trends over the decade from 2005 through 2014 adjusting for sex, age, race/Hispanic origin, ...

      CONTEXT: The prevalence of high body mass index (BMI) among children and adolescents in the United States appeared to plateau between 1999 and 2006.

      OBJECTIVES: To provide the most recent estimates of high BMI among children and adolescents and high weight for recumbent length among infants and toddlers and to analyze trends in prevalence between 1999 and 2008.

      DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2007-2008, a representative sample of ...

      BACKGROUND: Body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), and the waist-stature ratio (WSR) are considered to be possible proxies for adiposity.

      OBJECTIVE: The objective was to investigate the relations between BMI, WC, WSR, and percentage body fat (measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry) in adults in a large nationally representative US population sample from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES).

      DESIGN: BMI, WC, and WSR were compared with percentage ...

      IMPORTANCE: More than one-third of adults and 17% of youth in the United States are obese, although the prevalence remained stable between 2003-2004 and 2009-2010.

      OBJECTIVE: To provide the most recent national estimates of childhood obesity, analyze trends in childhood obesity between 2003 and 2012, and provide detailed obesity trend analyses among adults.

      DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: Weight and height or recumbent length were measured in 9120 participants in the 2011-2012 ...

      CONTEXT: As the prevalence of obesity increases in the United States, concern over the association of body weight with excess mortality has also increased.

      OBJECTIVE: To estimate deaths associated with underweight (body mass index [BMI] <18.5), overweight (BMI 25 to <30), and obesity (BMI > or =30) in the United States in 2000.

      DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: We estimated relative risks of mortality associated with different levels of BMI (calculated as weight in kilograms divided by ...

      CONTEXT: The prevalence of overweight among US children and adolescents increased between 1980 and 2004.

      OBJECTIVES: To estimate the prevalence of 3 measures of high body mass index (BMI) for age (calculated as weight in kilograms divided by height in meters squared) and to examine recent trends for US children and adolescents using national data with measured heights and weights.

      DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: Height and weight measurements were obtained from 8165 children and ...

      OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to examine the prevalences of diagnosed and undiagnosed diabetes, and impaired fasting glucose (IFG) in U.S. adults during 1999-2002, and compare prevalences to those in 1988-1994.

      RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) contains a probability sample of adults aged > or =20 years. In the NHANES 1999-2002, 4,761 adults were classified on glycemic status using standard criteria, based on an ...

      CONTEXT: The association of body mass index (BMI) with cause-specific mortality has not been reported for the US population.

      OBJECTIVE: To estimate cause-specific excess deaths associated with underweight (BMI <18.5), overweight (BMI 25-<30), and obesity (BMI > or =30).

      DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: Cause-specific relative risks of mortality from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) I, 1971-1975; II, 1976-1980; and III, 1988-1994, with mortality follow-up ...
