Count of Indigenous regular clients aged 25 and over who had their BMI classified as overweight or obese within the previous 24 months.

Presented as a number.

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. Body mass index is the weight in kilograms divided by the square of the height in metres (WHO 2017).

Calculated separately for 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.
