For each school year, the weighted sample estimates matched known population totals for enrollments per year by demographic categories for the two school districts (ASD and MSBSD), two grade-range categories (grades K, 1, and 3 and grades 5 and 7), sex (male and female), and race/ethnicity (white, AI/AN, and all other races/ethnicities).
The prevalence of obesity among children in ASD schools decreased 2.2%, from 18.0% to 17.6%; the prevalence among children in MSBSD schools did not decrease but was significantly lower (12.5% in 2003-04 and 12.4% in 2004-05) than the prevalence observed in ASD schools (Table).
Over the past decade, various practices, programs, and policies have been created in Alaska, by the state government and by ASD and MSBSD, to address childhood obesity.
