A spatial microsimulation (small-area estimation-SAE) model will be developed to generate SME in Idaho counties of the factors that place individuals at highest risk for obesity.  The model will estimate selected obesity indicators and other demographic characteristics in Idaho counties using data from the American Community Survey (ACS and the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) with the goal of identifying those counties, local areas, and at risk populations with the highest risk of obesity and most in need of targeted interventions.
