One-in-Four Say They’re Overweight

A new study released this week claims that the United States has the greatest percentage of obese children and young adults, but most Americans don’t think it applies to them.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 25% of American Adults now say they are overweight, down from 32% in 2015
and the lowest since Rasmussen Reports first asked the question in 2009.
The number of Americans who say they’re overweight has been on the decline since reaching a high of 42% in May 2012.

Two-thirds of Americans (67%) say they are not overweight. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The survey of 1,000 Adults nationwide was conducted on June 12-13, 2017 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
