  1. Note: Age: 20-39, 40-59, 60-74; Sex: Male, Female, Race: non-Hispanic White, non-Hispanic Black, Hispanic and Other
  2. Obesity inequality is not decomposed by race in (1971-1974) and (1976-1980) due to a lack of consistent definition of race category in NHANES
  3. Within- and between-group inequality as a proportion of total inequality in parentheses
