Silicon Valley data include Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties. The California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) is conducted via telephone survey of more than 20,000 Californians across 58 counties each year. The data includes adults 18 years of age and older. Calculated using reported height and weight, a Body Mass Index (BMI) value of 25.0 – 29.99 is categorized as Overweight, and a BMI of 30.0 or greater is categorized as Obese. Starting in 2011, CHIS transitioned from a biennial survey model to a continuous survey model, which enables a more frequent (annual) release of data.
