The ratio of the share of adults with diabetes (type I and II) to the share of adults (18+ years) defined as obese. A value of 0.2 would indicate that the prevalence of diabetes was 20% that of the prevalence of obesity. An adult is defined as obese if they have a body-mass index (BMI) of 30 or greater.
