The Influence of Race, Education, and Income level on a Person’s Body Weight

1.0 Background
Over the past few decades, some research indicates that body weight can be influenced
by income, education, sex, and race. Nonetheless, it is unclear whether a person's body weight is
dependent on the level of education attainment. Worth to note, there has been an escalating rate
of increased body weight in the United States resulting to researchers engaging in surveys to
determine whether body weight is dependent on income sex, race, or education attainment.
Apparently, race and gender and the prevalence of body weight differ across socio-economic
classes (Cohen, Rehkopf, Deardorff, & Abrams, 2013). Thus, the research in heighten the
understanding of the relationship between body weight and socio-economic status is warranting.
Besides, although the nature of body weight related health issues is similar among all
individuals, the particular degree of risk is linked with a given level of body weight, which may
different depending on sex, race, education, and income (Paeratakul, Lovejoy, Ryan, & Bray,
2002). Moreover, in the United States, the disease burden linked with increased body weight,
such as gall bladder illness, high blood pressure, and osteoarthritis was realized to have occurred
due to increased body weight. Thus, the dissertation aims at investigating the association

and level of income?
