The Catalogue of Surveillance Systems provides one-stop access to over 100 publicly available datasets relevant to childhood obesity research.

Datasets profiled in the Catalogue include information on obesity-related:

  • Health behaviors, outcomes, and determinants
  • Policies and environmental factors

Surveillance systems included in the Catalogue were identified by reviewing existing reports and soliciting expert input. The systems were chosen because they provide access to publicly available raw data gathered in the United States and were released in the past 10 years.
