Health Indicator Report of BMI - overweight (25 LE BMI LT 30), adult

The percentage of overweight adults is an indicator of the overall health and lifestyle of a community. Being overweight affects quality of life and puts individuals at risk for developing many diseases, especially heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and cancer. Losing weight helps to prevent and control these diseases. Being overweight or obese also carries significant economic costs due to increased healthcare spending and lost earnings.

Notes

The percentages reported above have been produced by weighting the sample so that the results better represent the Hawaii population. Numerator and denominator data have been rounded to the nearest 100. In cases where the numerator is 49 or less, it is displayed as 50. Statistical Stability -- Relative standard error, or RSE, is the standard error expressed as a proportion of the point estimate. Stable is displayed when the RSE is below 0.30. Unstable is displayed when the RSE is 0.30-0.50. An unstable count or rate may fluctuate widely across time periods due to random variation (chance). Very unstable is displayed when the RSE is greater than 0.50. A very unstable count or rate should not be used to inform decision making. Problems with statistical instability typically occur when there is a small number of health events in a small population. You may combine years or otherwise increase the population size used in the query to achieve a more stable count or rate. Suppression of Estimates -- According to CDC BRFSS guidelines, a minimum of 50 respondents must answer the question in order for it to be reported. Where the number of respondents is below 30, or the RSE is greater than 0.30, ** will appear in the table.

Data Interpretation Issues

The survey is conducted using scientific telephone survey methods. Both cell phones and land lines are included. Excluded are adults living in group quarters with a central phone system such as college dormitories, nursing homes, military barracks, and prisons. Results have been weighted to the adult population by age, gender, race, education, marital status, home ownership, telephone source (landline versus cell phone), and county of residence.
