CHMS obesity data

I have a researcher who is looking for data from the CHMS on obesity.

They are hoping to have the data from this table for 2007 (this table only has data between 2009-2017)

Table  13-10-0373-01   Overweight and obesity based on measured body mass index, by age group and sex

We’ve received the following response from subject matter:
“In the table provided, you can look at footnote 2, it reads ‘’Data from the Canadian Health Measures Survey are collected over a two-year period from a sample of approximately 5,700 respondents. Cycle 1 data collected from March 2007 to February 2009. Cycle 2 data collected from August 2009 to December 2011. Data collected from January to December of the following year for subsequent cycles.”

Unfortunately we were restricted with the naming of the columns, therefore the 2009 column includes all of Cycle 1, which was collected from March 2007 to February 2009.”
