  1. Fulltext. High temporal, geographic, and income variation in body mass index among adults in Brazil.

    Article - En anglais



    Population-based data on body mass index for developing countries are scarce.

    Body mass index data from two Brazilian surveys were examined to determine regional and temporal variations in the prevalences of underweight, overweight, and obesity.


    Nationwide surveys in 1974/75 and 1989 collected anthropometric data in Brazil from 55 000 and 14 455 households, respectively.

    Trained interviewers used the same methods to measure weight and stature in both surveys, and surveys designs were identical.
