Definitions: This indicator includes teens, ages 12-17.

Data Source: Children Now analysis of California Health Interview Survey for 2012-2014, "Body Mass Index - 2 level," .    (Accessed August 25, 2015).

Footnotes: County Groupings for 2012, 2013, and 2014 CHIS Data: The California Health Interview Survey produced county-level results for 41 counties, and area-level results for the remaining 17 counties with smaller populations, which were analyzed collectively in groupings of 3 to 7 counties. These county groupings included: Grouping 1: Del Norte, Siskiyou, Lassen, Trinity, Modoc, Plumas, Sierra, Grouping 2: Tehama, Glenn, Colusa, and Grouping 3: Tuolumne, Calaveras, Amador, Inyo, Mariposa, Mono, Alpine.  Although the percentages are listed for each individual county, those percentages for the 17 counties in area-level groupings reflect the outcomes for the entire area rather than for the single county. 

Values that are statistically unstable are denoted with an asterisk (*). Percents may not sum to 100% due to rounding.

Asterisks* An asterisk indicates that data should be interpreted with caution. Asterisks were used to note low number of events (fewer than 10) or unstable data with large confidence intervals. Data or estimates with low numbers and large confidence intervals indicate that a data point may not be a true representation of the larger population. NA (Not Available) Data that are not available are noted as NA. The most frequent reasons for using the NA annotation include the unavailability of longitudinal data, data suppression from the original data source due to a low number event, or statistically unstable estimates.
