|Panel B. By Age Group, y|
|Panel C. By Race/Ethnicity|
|Hispanic or Latino||16.1%|
|American Indian/Alaska Native||15.3%|

|Underweight (<18.5 kg/m2)||2.6%|
|Normal weight (18.5–24.9 kg/m2)||6.4%|
|Overweight (25–29.9 kg/m2)||12.3%|
|Class I obesity (30–34.9 kg/m2)||18.4%|
|Class II obesity (35–39.9 kg/m2)||23.8%|
|Class III obesity (≥40 kg/m2)||29.6%|
Figure 2. Prevalence of diabetes by body mass index class for selected races and Hispanic ethnicity. Body mass index was calculated as measured weight in kilograms divided by height in meters squared.
|Race/ethnicity||Body Mass Index (kg/m2) Class|
|Hispanic or Latino||2.2%||8.7%||14.9%||20.5%||25.6%||31.0%|
