The following analysis is of local childhood weight data gathered through the National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP):
- Headline results from 2022-23 academic year.
- Analytical report using National Child Measurement Programme data for the 2021/22 academic year, including trends and inequalities analysis.
- View our previous NCMP analytical report for the 2020/21 academic year. This contains only Year R data as due to the pandemic data collection focused on reception year children.
- 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).
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.
We have produced literature reviews that examine evidence for engaging with minority groups in weight management programmes and examining the relationship between weight and unemployment.
