Morbid Obesity


Is it possible to get rates of morbid obesity (BMI > 35) for each LHIN for an age greater than 18 years and for the period of 2007/2008 and 2009/2010?


Consult the CANSIM Table 105-0502. There is a health indicator profile, two year period estimates, by age group and sex, Canada, provinces, territories, health regions (2012 boundaries) and peer groups. Under "Add/Remove Data" you can select Ontario by Local Health Integration Network and under Select Indicators you have the option to select: Body Mass index, self-reported adults obese. The reference periods from 2007/2008 to 2011/2012 available.
