Thought some of you might enjoy - perhaps find interesting would be more apt - this graphic:

It is a bit misleading when the "no data" states start getting filled in but in any event it is interesting.

Of course keep in mind the old "lies, damned lies and statistics" quote when looking at information presented this way.

I guess the process of extrapolation is alive and well in statistical analysis when the process of factoring BMI is the condition. Cool graphics though,….pretty colors. Hmmmm, I thought Wisconsin would have been a lot higher, maybe there is still hope for us after all.:lol:
