United States CDC Maps Showing Rates of Obesity, Physical Inactivity, Type II Diabetes, and Heart Disease Death

I’m working on a book-related presentation that I’ll be giving in Hanover, NH next Wednesday evening and have been poring through the CDC website for updated data on physical activity and obesity trends in the US. Found updates of the following four graphs showing rates of physical inactivity (lack of leisure-time activity), obesity, Type II diabetes, and Heart Disease deaths – thought I’d share them here. Haven’t found one on dietary factors yet, but the patterns are certainly not surprising:

No Physical Activity

2009 Age-Adjusted Estimates of the Percentage of Adults Who Are Physically Inactive

Obesity Rates

2009 Age-Adjusted Estimates of the Percentage of Adults Who Are Obese

Type II Diabetes

2009 Age-Adjusted Estimates of the Percentage of Adults with Diagnosed Diabetes

Heart Disease Deaths

2000-2006 Heart Disease Death Rates Among Adults 35+
