A guide to anthropometric measures

Data about body weight, particularly data about overweight and obesity, are of great interest to health researchers and program managers.

The database lists national data collections that include body weight and related data. Each listing shows data included in that collection plus a link to its owning organisation.

Readers can browse all the data collections, or chose data collections that are relevant to their interests by selecting various filters, for example for a specific state or territory.


This is a new resource and we are keen to hear what you think about it, or whether you have any suggestions about how to improve it. We would also like you to tell us about other collections containing information about body weight that we may not know about.
