Background:Surveys such as the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) collect only self-reported data on height and weight to estimate obesity prevalence rates. Because of biased self-reporting of height and weight, obesity prevalence rates reported by these surveys are too low.Objective:To develop regression models that can predict corrected height, weight and obesity prevalence from self-reported data, as well as to compare obesity prevalence rates based on self-reported and… CONTINUE READING
