Survey on Childhood Obesity

A new survey by The San Jose Mercury News and the Kaiser Family Foundation on childhood obesity. The survey focuses on Bay Area adults’ knowledge about childhood obesity and their attitudes towards policy options to address it. Furthermore, the survey examines Bay Area parents’ views on their own child’s weight and lifestyle and the different attitudes of Bay Area Hispanics, whites, and Asians. A separate national survey of adults provides national comparisons of views on public policy options (March 2004).
