Figure 1

BMI trajectories according to age and birth cohort in men and women, as predicted by linear regression. Models include a quadratic term for age and are not adjusted for other covariates. Years of birth for the cohorts displayed (1944, 1954, 1964) are arbitrary but maximize the ranges of participants' ages during which predicted BMI values are based on data estimated from the underlying surveys (plain lines) vs. extrapolated predicted values (dotted lines).
