Abstract

La obesidad es un problema médico complejo que, según la Organización Mundial de la Salud, se ha convertido en epidemia mundial. Su creciente prevalencia se traduce en un incremento de la incidencia de las patologías asociadas con un impacto significativo sobre los costos sanitarios y un deterioro de la calidad de vida. Este problema es especialmente importante en niveles de ingreso bajo cuyas poblaciones deben soportar una doble carga de enfermedad al convivir sujetos obesos con otros desnutridos. En este trabajo se analizan los resultados de la Encuesta Nacional de Factores de Riesgo estableciendo la incidencia de las condiciones socioeconómicas sobre indicadores de obesidad y sobrepeso en las provincias argentinas mediante técnicas de econometría espacial. According to World Health Organization obesity has become a global epidemic. Its increasing prevalence is leading to a greater incidence of associated diseases, with a significant impact on health costs and a decline in life quality. This problem is especially important in low-income households whose members often suffer a double burden of disease arising from the coexistence of obesity and malnutrition. In this paper we analyze the results from the Risk Factors National Survey relating the prevalence of obesity and overweight in Argentinean provinces with socioeconomic determinants based on a spatial regression model.
