How Obese Is Pennsylvania?
Dear, PA: You’re completely average! Which is to say “only” 29.1% of your residents are obese. Which is good for 30th most obese in the country.
These numbers come from the United Health Foundation’s annual report on obesity, smoking, diabetes, and physical fitness. Pennsylvania’s obesity numbers are slightly up from last year, when 28.6% of the population was estimated to be obese.
