Review of obesity and socio-economic groups in Europe

A review of the literature entitled Obesity and socio-economic groups in Europe: Evidence review and implications for action ( has recently been prepared by Aileen Robertson, Tim Lobstein and Cécile Knai. The aim of the review was to collate information from the literature and from international and national databases about the association between obesity and socio-economic status in European countries. The review also describes some policies and interventions that are recommended to complement current initiatives in the area of health promotion.
