Data and reports
Information on childhood and adult obesity rates can be found in the 'starting well' and 'living well' sections of our Health and Social Care Maps.
We have produced an obesity health needs assessment (PDF, 5.8 MB) for Kent, as well as the following analysis of local childhood weight data gathered through the National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP):
- Local authority level analysis of local childhood weight data up to 2017/18 (PDF, 1.6 MB), including comparisons with England and the South East.
- Analysis of inequalities in obesity and excess weight in childhood (PDF, 694.8 KB) in Kent.
- Analysis of the drivers of excess weight and obesogenic environment.
We have also produced an analysis of the overlap between obesity, alcohol and smoking (PDF, 636.3 KB).
Additionally we have analysed uptake of the 2016 Change4Life local campaign (PDF, 908.9 KB) and the 2016 Change4Life Sugar Smart campaign (PDF, 1.1 MB) in Kent.
