Notes

  1. (23 July 2018) p.13 updated wording to boys overweight and obesity rates from 'were 1.3 times as likely' to 'there was no significant difference'.
  2. (20 August 2019) On pages vi and 12 and in supplementary table S2, the 1995 data for children was incorrect as the incorrect age/weight variables were used in the ABS National Health Survey 2007-08 reissue. As such the data has been revised from 21% of children were overweight or obese in 1995 to 20% of children were overweight or obese in 1995.
