    The CDC 2022 Adult Obesity Prevalence Maps for 50 states, the District of Columbia, and 3 US territories show the proportion of adults with a body mass index (BMI) equal to or greater than 30 ( ≥30 kg/m2) based on self-reported weight and height. Data are presented by race, ethnicity, and location. The data come from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, an ongoing state-based, telephone interview survey conducted by CDC and state health departments.

    The 2022 maps show that obesity impacts some groups more than others. There are notable differences by race and ethnicity, as shown by combined data from 2020–2022.

    Among geographic groups (states, territories, or DC) with enough data, the number with an adult obesity prevalence of 35% or higher, by race/ethnicity, is:

    • Non-Hispanic Asian adults: 0 (among 37 states, 1 territory, and DC)

    • Non-Hispanic White adults: 14 (among 49 states, 1 territory, and DC)

    • Hispanic adults: 32 (among 49 states, 2 territories, and DC)

    • Non-Hispanic American Indian or Alaska Native adults: 33 (among 47 states)

    • Non-Hispanic Blacks: 38 (among 48 states and DC)
