ENKID is a cross-sectional epidemiological study of a representative sample of the Spanish population aged 2 to 24 years (n=3534).

Obesity and overweight were defined according to BMI values for the 97th and 85th percentiles, respectively using Spanish reference data provided by Hernández et al (1998).
