This data layer depicts the adult Obesity Rate. It was developed by Minnesota Compass and the Natural Resources Research Institute using data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The adult Obesity Rate is the percentage of adults (age 20+) who were obese in 2016. It was compiled at the county level. Note that these are statistical estimates and do not include the margin of error. Obesity rate data have been used as an indicator of community health and well-being. These data are useful in transportation planning, food access programming, parks and trails design, and other community health services.
