This report summarises the key findings from the Government's National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP) for England, 2011/12 school year. The report provides high-level analysis of the prevalence of 'underweight', 'healthy weight', 'overweight', 'obese' and 'overweight and obese combined' children, in Reception (aged 4-5 years) and Year 6 (aged 10-11 years), measured in state schools in England in the school year 2011/12.
The National Obesity Observatory (NOO) will produce additional analysis of 2011/12 NCMP data (expected to be published in early 2013). The anonymised national dataset will also be made available to Public Health Observatories (PHOs) to allow regional and local analysis of the data.
In addition, NOO have included 2011/12 NCMP data (as well as data from previous years) in an e-Atlas - an interactive mapping tool that enables the user to compare a range of indicators, examine correlations and make regional and national comparisons.
