    • Adults in 2014–15 were more likely to be obese than adults of the same age 20 years earlier
    • Adults born more recently were more likely to be severely obese at several ages than their counterparts 20 years earlier
    • The relative differences in abdominal obesity over time were greater than for obesity based on BMI
