Obesity Data

In 2002, the State of West Virginia published a document entitled “Obesity: Facts, Figures, Guidelines” which discussed various studies into genetic and environmental causes of obesity, chronic conditions and diseases associated with obesity, treatments for obesity, and presented then-current data on the costs associated with, and the prevalence of, obesity in West Virginia. Between three to four years of surveillance data, primarily from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) have accumulated since that time.
