Description:

Percentage of respondents aged 16 years and over who are obese, HSNI 2013/14

Numerator:Number of respondents aged 16 years and over who are obese (obese + morbidly obese), HSNI 2013/14

Adult obesity levels were estimated using the Body Mass Index. This is a widely used indicator of body fat levels which is calculated from a person’s height and weight. BMI is calculated by dividing a person’s weight (in kilograms) by the square of their height (in metres). In adults, a BMI between 25 and 29.9kg/m2 is considered overweight and a BMI of 30kg/m2 is considered obese.

An LGD’s value is assumed to be equal to its HSCT value. This will mask any LGD variation within that HSCT.

 

This data presents the results from the 2013/14 Health Survey Northern Ireland.  This is a continuous survey which runs annually covering a range of health topics.

The fieldwork for the survey was conducted by the Central Survey Unit of Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA) and covers the period April 2013 to March 2014.

Data were collected using Computer Assisted Personal Interviewing (CAPI) and where appropriate Computer Assisted Self Interviewing (CASI) from those aged 16 and above in private households in Northern Ireland.

A random sample of 5,850 addresses across Northern Ireland was selected for interviewing. The final achieved sample was 4,509 individuals. The response rate for the survey was 66%.

Date data covers:
01/04/2013 to 31/03/2014

Indicator numerator:
Number of respondents aged 16 years and over who are obese (obese + morbidly obese), HSNI 2013/14

Cautionary notes:
An LGD’s value is assumed to be equal to its HSCT value. This will mask any LGD variation within that HSCT.
