Alien Abductions in Northern America increasing. Canada now empty
In 2003/4, the population of Canada was estimated to be 31,510,000. It was also the year that WHO decided to do a BMI survey. So to get an accurate picture of the nation's health with regard to obesity they surveyed 120,150 people.
The statistics read as followed
2.6% of the population aged 18-100 were underweight
46.7% of the population aged 18-100 were of normal weight
48.2% of the population aged 18-100 were classified as overweight (14.9% classified as obese with a BMI of over 30)
Quite what happened to the missing 2.5% of the population I am not sure.....
But panic not, another survey was taken in 2004 (to find the missing population?). This was an unmitigated success as the statics read as follows:
59.1 % of the population (18-100) were classified as overweight (23.1 classified as obese)
Canada has apparently sustained more losses with 40.1% of their population now missing......
There are no figures after this date, so one assumes that Canada is now empty?
And the plot thickens.....
In 2002, the USA apparently had 100% population
1999 - 2002 survey of 10,652 people
2.4% of the population (16-100) were underweight
35% were of normal weight
62.5% were classified as overweight (28.9% classified as obese)
2002 of 68,500 people surveyed in a national survey
5.2% were underweight (18-100)
35.7% were of normal weight
59.2% were classified as overweight (25.1% classified as obese)
2002 of 86,003 in the State of Georgia aged between 50 and 100
2% were underweight
40.4 were of normal weight
57.6% were overweight (23.3% classified as obese)
In 2004, 85,143 people were surveyed in 11 states.
2.3% of the population (18-100) were underweight
41.8% were of normal weight
55.9% were classified as overweight.(22.4% classified as obese)
There was another survey in 2005/6, in which 66.6% of Americans were classified as overweight with 30.5% of the population been classified as obese.
(So the USA was missing 33.4% of the population then).
In 2007/8, WHO surveyed a total of 5,555 people in the USA - population estimated 301,139,947.
68% of the population was overweight (37.6% were classified as obese)
32% of the population missing.
Where have they gone? Because it seems unlikely they have gone to Canada.......
In all seriousness, this short exercise was meant to show you that statistics, even those taken in the same year, are a nonsense really. Variations in a general population of some 5% and the lack of a quarter of the population can lead to some serious "fodder" for the "obesity hysteria", so beloved of the diet companies.......
