This report uses NCMP data to examine the changes in children's body mass index (BMI) between 2006 to 2007 and 2015 to 2016.
The report explores trends in obesity, overweight, excess weight and underweight prevalence, as well as changes in mean BMI over time. It is aimed at local authorities and other organisations who want to examine detailed trends in child weight category prevalence over time, and how these vary by health inequality.
