About Us

BetterOff is the newest project of Outcomes Australia. BetterOff is committed to reversing the trend of obesity in Australia.

Australia is one of the five most obese countries of the world.

In Australia today, around two-thirds of adults and a quarter of children are overweight or obese. There has been a dramatic change since the late 1970s when we first collected national data on weight and height.

In 1980, around 60 percent of Australian adults had a healthy weight; today around 35 percent do. In 1980, just 10 percent of adults were obese. In 2012, this figure is closer to 25 percent.
