BMI: A measure of an adult's weight (body mass) relative to height used to assess the extent of weight deficit or excess where height and weight have been measured. BMI is the weight in kilograms divided by the square of the height in metres (WHO 2017).
Calculated separately for the overweight and obese classifications.
If the client had their BMI recorded more than once within the previous 24 months, only the most recently recorded result is included in this calculation.
Only include those client's whose BMI was classified using a height measurement taken since the client turned 25 and a weight measurement taken within the previous 24 months.
