Childhood obesity: An integrated review towards the comprehension of scientific data sources

People Involved

Project Description

Childhood obesity is an ever-growing issue in Scotland and around the globe. This project laid down the foundation of using routine data sources to understand the incidence/prevalence of childhood obesity and explore availability of relevant contributing factors data available from public sector and other organisations.
