BMI is calculated as weight (in kilograms) divided by the square of height (in metres).
For adults, obesity is defined as a BMI of greater than or equal to 30.
For children, obesity is defined as BMI (appropriate for age and sex) that is likely to be 30 or more at age 18 years, based on centile curves. See ABS National Health Survey: Users' Guide Electronic Publication, 2007–08 (ABS Catalogue no. 4363.0.55.001) for BMI values.
Rates are directly age-standardised.
Excludes pregnant women where identified and people with an unknown Body Mass Index (BMI).
Analysis by remoteness and SEIFA Indicator of Relative Socio-economic Disadvantage (IRSD) is based on usual residence of person.
Presented as a percentage.
95% confidence intervals and relative standard errors calculated for rates.
100 × (Numerator ÷ Denominator)
Calculated separately for adults and children.
Adults: Number of persons aged 18 years or over who are obese
Children: Number of persons aged 5–17 years who are obese
|Numerator data elements:|
Adults: Population aged 18 years or over
Children: Population aged 5–17 years
|Denominator data elements:|

Disaggregations within individual jurisdictions are subject to data quality considerations. Some disaggregations may result in numbers too small for publication.
|Disaggregation data elements:|
2007–08 national data based on measured values; data for Indigenous/non-Indigenous disaggregations are based on self-report. BMI derived from measured height and weight is preferable to that derived from self-reported height and weight.
Most recent data available for 2011 CRC report: 2007–08 (total population, with the exception of estimates for children residing in the Northern Territory: NHS); 2004–05 (Indigenous status adults only: NATSIHS and NHS).
NO NEW DATA FOR 2011 REPORTING.
For further detailed analysis by Indigenous status, see the National Indigenous Reform Agreement (NIRA) report.
