Abstract

To estimate the prevalence of underweight, overweight, and obesity among children who were beneficiaries of the Brazil's conditional cash transfer program Bolsa Família during 2010, according to gender and health in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil. Descriptive epidemiological study was conducted with a secondary database of Datasus/Sisvan. The data from 19,289 children (9,451 girls and 9,838 boys), aged 5 to 10 years, who benefited from the program Bolsa Família in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul in 2010 were collected. The variables were body weight and height. Body mass index was analyzed with Z-scores of normative tables from the World Health Organization. The prevalence of underweight was 4.8% among female and 5.6% among male participants. The prevalence of overweight and obesity was, respectively, 14.8 and 9.1% for female participants and 16.1 and 11.9% for male participants. The prevalence of underweight and obesity was lower in cities/towns with a lower Human Development Index, for female and male individuals. The prevalence of overweight in cities/towns with a lower Human Development Index was lower among female participants and higher among male participants. The higher prevalence of overweight among individuals of lower socioeconomic status indicates the need for understanding macro-factors that can influence the children's nutritional status.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 18 June 2015.
All research outputs
#9,967,294
of 12,450,620 outputs
Outputs from Revista Brasileira de Epidemiologia
#86
of 148 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#161,235
of 234,282 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Revista Brasileira de Epidemiologia
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,450,620 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 148 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.9. This one is in the 20th percentile – i.e., 20% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 234,282 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 17th percentile – i.e., 17% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
