NYSDOH Student Weight Status Category Reporting (SWSCR)

NYS Weight Status Data Reporting and Obesity Statistics

  • Student Weight Status Data 
    Beginning in 2010, all data reported through the Student Weight Status Category Reporting System has been released by Health Data New York. Prior to 2010, data from SWSCR was released through the printable report and continue to be incorporated into reports released to the public. These reports are accessible through web links posted on this linked page. 

    The Student Weight Data Explorer
    This dashboard reports data on overweight and obesity by school districts, counties, and regions of the state. It includes tools that provide comprehensive data on an individual school district or allow you to compare multiple districts, and multiple counties, and review statewide and regional trends. Schools can use this data to determine health, education, and fitness goals, and apply for grant funding.

    NYSDOH Information For Action # 2019-02
    The report provides information that NYS obesity rates are decreasing among elementary school students but on the rise among middle and high school students.
