  WIN - Statistics
To understand these statistics, it is necessary to know how overweight and obesity are defined and measured, something this publication addresses.
For age-adjusted rates, statistical procedures are used to remove the effect of age differences when comparing two or more populations at one point in time, or one population at two or more points in time.
Most of the statistics presented here represent the economic cost of overweight and obesity in the United States in 1995, updated to 2001 dollars.[10] Unless otherwise noted, these statistics are adapted from Wolf and Colditz,[11] who based their data on existing epidemiological studies that defined overweight and obesity as a BMI > 29.

By determining how many foster children there are in the system, how many wait to be adopted and other crucial pieces of the statistical puzzle, adoption professionals may more expertly help the children they aspire to serve.
