Obesity has serious consequences both for individuals and for society as a whole. At the individual level, obesity is associated with a host of diseases resulting in reduced life expectancy, lower productivity and wages, and increased health-care expenditure. Obesity also entails significant private expenditures on preventative measures such as gymnasium memberships and weight-loss programs. At the level of the broader society, the individual consequences are reflected in social costs through lost productivity, reduced income tax receipts for the government, greater public health-care expenditure, and expenditure on public policies for reducing obesity. In this chapter, we describe and document the individual consequences and present and interpret measures of the social costs.
