Leave a comment

Obesity prevalence among African-American women was shockingly high — more than 50% for those ages 20 to 59 and topping 60% for those ages 60 and over compared with 32% of non-Hispanic white women and 37% of Mexican-American women. Obesity rates were lowest for non-Hispanic whites in most age and sex categories.

Among men, however, the prevalence of obesity did not differ significantly by race/ethnic groups.
