Abstract

Background: Obesity remains a pressing public health problem. Globally, 37% of men and 38% of women are overweight or obese. Over the last three decades, Australasia has outpaced other regions of the world with the largest absolute increase in adult obesity. Obesity is inversely associated with measures of socioeconomic status (SES) including education, or income. Fewer studies have its relationship to wealth. In cross-sectional population studies, a recently developed, novel spatial property wealth indicator, relative location factor (RLF) was shown to be associated with body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference (WAISTC). This 10-year longitudinal study evaluated whether RLF trajectory was associated with trajectories of BMI and WAISTC.
