Description

This chart displays the percent of students who are obese by grade level (district total, elementary or middle/high) for seven regions of New York State (excluding New York City). Removing the region filter is not recommended. The chart is based on data collected through the Student Weight Status Category Reporting System (SWSCR).

Notes
Notes
The SWSCR dataset includes weight status data collected from all public school districts outside of the five boroughs of NYC. The data is also aggregated to New York State Department of Education county code assigned to reporting schools and school districts, and to NYSDOH regions and statewide. Because school district boundaries do not align with county or regional boundaries, the county- and regional-level estimates reflect data from students attending school within schools assigned a particular county or regional code. County and regional assignment is not based on county or region of residence.
Disclaimers
Limitations
Because of restrictions in reporting due to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) there was some variation in how much of the student population was represented in the data schools submitted to SWSCR, especially among smaller school districts. Therefore the percentage of the student population represented in the district, county and regional-level estimates may vary.
