For more information on the interpretation of the data please see the notes below.
These notes apply to both the Graph and the Data Table.
- Indicator Definition: Respondents aged 12-17 years classified as "obese" according to the age-and-sex specific BMI (based on self-reported height and weight) cut-off points as defined by the World Health Organization
- Cells highlighted in yellow should be interpreted with caution, as the measure itself or at least one of the components used to calculate the value has a coefficient of variation between 16.6 to 33.3%.
- Cells highlighted in red indicate that values have been suppressed because the measure itself or at least one of the components used to calculate the value has a coefficient of variation greater than 33.3%, a small numerator (<10), small denominator (<20), or empty age-standardization groups.
- Cells highlighted in blue indicate that values have been suppressed because their interpretation is complex or not possible.
- A dash symbol indicates that the value was suppressed for one of the reasons described above, or that the calculation was not applicable.
- When an indicator and a stratifier are crossed, the age interval is limited to that available in both the indicator and the stratifier.
- Obesity for youth (aged 12-17) is based on self-reported, non-adjusted BMI.
