Prevalence trends in obesity defined by the Relative Fat Mass (RFM) index among adults in the United States: 1999−2018

      Background: The Relative Fat Mass (RFM) is a simple anthropometric index based on the ratio of height to waist circumference developed to estimate whole-body adiposity. Among women and men, RFM has a very high accuracy (>90%) to diagnose fat-defined obesity using dual energy X-ray absorptiometry. This study estimated the age-adjusted national prevalence trends of RFM-defined obesity for women and men 20-74 years of age in the United States between 1999 and 2018.
