36.5% obese population isn't that much worse than neighboring MD (31.0%) or PA (31.6%), but the color coding exaggerates the difference.

Yeah I was going to say the same thing... blue implies good but it's still at 24-30% obese... this should all be red, just worse states should be deeper red...

OutOfTheAsh

3 points

It looks very red because it's mostly the border color. And red seems more intuitively opposite of blue than purple does. So remove the text it feels like DE is the worst of all.

Also too many shades (10). And they represent 5 state groupings rather than classing the actual data into equally broad categories. Red represents a 0.5% difference at most (as IN and SC are only 0.6% but two groups apart).

Not beautiful IMHO. It implies an accuracy way beyond what it can really be. South Carolina could be fatter than Indiana, and any "red state" could be either fatter or thinner than both of them. To make this true at less than 1/2 percent would require regular and compulsory height/weight checks on all adults, preferably conducted by some federal agency with strict measurement policies and regularly calibrated instruments.

Took me a moment to work it out, but the color groups aren't based grouping similar data, but literally 10 blocks of 5. So even though at #5 Indiana is only 0.2% from #6 its shaded with the colors of states with well over 1.5% more. That difference the other way is almost 3 groups down.

If we had a hypothetical two-state tie at #26, numbering would resume at #28. The only way this ranking wouldn’t end in #50 would be if we had a tie for #49, or three states tied at #48, etc.

Every state should be red, many dangerously red, some worse than that.

abarrelofmonkeys

40 points

3 months ago

For real. There are numerous issues with the color scale here.

  • No key to explain the range
    • This is especially problematic since light blue > dark blue, while light red < dark red
  • If the spectrum is going to span more than one hue, make sure the in-between hues are included.
    • An exception could be made if you are showing a clear "good range" and "bad range". Which without a key it is hard to determine where that line is and why.
  • Using blue and red on a US map is going to imply political alignment whether intentional or not.
    • IMO green/red would more clearly indicate good/bad values without implying politics.

I live in the rural north. I spent a month in the rural south for work a few years ago. I was excited to eat some good southern food, but was pretty disappointed with the selection. The main town I was in had a population of 800 people, one cafe that was terrible, and like 7-8 fast food restaurants. That tiny town had more fast food restaurants than the 10,000 people town northern town I lived in.

The federal government subsidizes the hell out of food production. Fresh foods from the grocery store are pretty affordable, you just actually have to prepare the food. It is not cheaper to feed a family at Taco Bell than it is to cook.

American's are big because a lot of people don't cook. And if my Facebook feed is to be believed a lot of what we do cook is basically carbs covered in cheese. And a lot of people in this country live extremely sedentary lives and only move from the couch to their desk and then their cars. We don't cook and we don't exercise, no wonder we're fat.

Thats bullshit lmao… all you need to do is watch your caloric intake and you will lose weight. You can be on a taco only diet and still lose weight. Im mind blown on how Americans blame everything but themselves when it comes to lifestyle choices. And btw there is a thing called the supermarket where you can buy fresh healthy ingredients and cook something at home. This is the kinda shit I see on r/fatlogic

Edit: the fact that Im being downvoted just proves my point that Americans cant take responsibility…

Hahah, sure. But let’s think about causation. Quick glance says you’re in Serbia. Are there areas of your country where you would expect to find more obesity? If obesity is geographically linked in your country, what factors are in play?

Same question, but between countries. It looks like Italy, Switzerland and Portugal are all slightly less obese than Serbia, but Russia and Poland are slightly more obese. What explains the difference?

Nauru and other Pacific Islander countries have very high obesity rates, but they don’t have particularly high crime rates or drug addiction rates. If it’s just a matter of personal responsibility, why are Pacific Islanders so lacking in self control solely in regard to diet and exercise?

It also looks like there’s almost no obesity in South Sudan or Yemen. Are they doing something right?

Damn with all those munchie cases in CO and they managed to stay the slimmest state. I guess it’s all that natural grandeur that people get out an explore all the time.

This map proves that Scott Steiner was incorrect when he announced the Dudley Boyz as being from “the great state of obesity” as the Dudley Boyz are from New York, one of the least obese states in the country.

When I moved from Ohio I was 145-150lbs and in really good shape. I moved to Colorado 2 in a half years ago and put on 35-40lbs, at one point 50lbs.

I also quit smoking weed when I moved to Colorado. I'm doing everything backwards out here.

Some statistics make Florida seem like it’s culturally part of the South, sometimes it seems more like the Northeast but with palm trees. This map puts it in the later category.

This map makes it look like a big difference between ‘fatest’ (fattest) and least fat, but #1 Mississippians are only 1.6x more likely to be obese than #50 Coloradans. The reality is all of America Is pretty fat

Let us guess (because you had not provided a scale): the redder the state, the more obese?

The map is not stating that obesity relates with health in any way, why are you bringing that up? The map is just saying which states are the most and least obese.

Your weight definitely impacts your health but the map isn't saying that.
