Which state/territory has the slimmest females? Obesity and being overweight is a real problem in Australia, which is classified as one of the fattest nations in the developed world. The phenomenon has been described as an 'epidemic' because of how quickly Australian waitlines have expanded and thereby increased the chance and frequency of weight-related illnesses. Thus, the percentage of those who  fall within a normal weight range is lower than desired. Having a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 25.00 and above is classified as overweight by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

This FACT indicates the percentage of females within a normal weight range (BMI of 24.99 and under) in state/territory. The state with the highest proportion of females who weigh within the normal weight range is Western Australia, at 45.2 percent, beating New South Wales by 0.1 percent. The state with the lowest is Tasmania, at 39 percent.

High is good
