The Average Weight Of Americans Is Climbing
Since today is the day that most Americans traditionally overeat, I thought it would be a good time to show you this Gallup Poll. It was done as follows:
Results for this Gallup poll are based on three sets of five-years of combined results from the Gallup Poll's Social Series on Health and Healthcare -- 2003-2007, 2008-2012, and 2013-2017. Survey interviews were conducted by telephone interviews with random samples of adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. For the 2003-2007 results, 5,044 adults were interviewed. For 2008-2012, 5,065 adults were interviewed. For 2013-2017, 4,935 adults were interviewed. For results based on the total samples of national adults, the margin of sampling error in all cases is ±2 percentage points at the 95% confidence level. 
I found it amusing that as our average weight increases, so does the weight we consider to be ideal.
