1 Body Mass Index, Overweight, and Obesity in Adult Participants NOTE: BMI is calculated as: Weight (kg) / (Height (m)) 2. Height and weight were self-reported by project participants. Previous studies have shown that men tend to overestimate their height and women underestimate their weight. Therefore, BMI is likely to be underestimated for both men and women. Body Mass Index (BMI) for Adult Participants (>= 19 Years of Age) 20,000 15,000 Frequency 10,000 5,000 Mean = Std.
