Originator Natural Resources Research Institute & Minnesota Compass
Title Obesity Rate - Adults
Abstract Obesity rate of adults (18+).
By county, 2020. Tabular data acquired from Minnesota Compass and appended to shapefile by NRRI.
Purpose Obesity increases the likelihood of diabetes, some forms of cancer, hypertension, and other chronic diseases. Concern has mounted in all developing countries of the world that obesity poses a major threat.

Major causes of obesity fall into the categories of behavior and environment. Behaviorally, the consumption of more calories than a person uses leads to overweight. This can be corrected through an increase in physical activity and/or a decrease in calorie consumption. Environmentally, the layouts of our homes, neighborhoods, and workplaces promote or inhibit physical activity which affects obesity.
