BMI is an intermediate variable used in calculating these measures. No=BMI less than 24.9, and Yes= BMI greater than 24.9.

#Use caution in interpreting cell sizes less than 50. N = Cell Size, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics.
