Find Local Data

What is the prevalence of childhood overweight and related diet and activity behaviors where you live or work? What data are available (if any) for your community and/or target audience? Try to find one statistic each about prevalence, dietary behaviors, and physical activity at the local or state level. Then share these data with your fellow learners by posting to the discussion. Data from Michigan are provided as examples.

Go to NW Tools for You for suggested sources of prevalence data related to childhood overweight and related behaviors.
