Data are from the California Department of Education, Physical Fitness Testing Research Files, and include all public school students in 5th, 7th and 9th grades in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties and California who were tested through the Fitnessgram assessment. In the 2013-14 school year, the performance standards changed for the Body Mass Index (BMI), one of the three body composition test options. The changes were made to better align with the well–established, health-related body fat standards from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
