The prevalence with new BMI was lower than that with standard body weight (P0.01), with its value of OOR being slightly higher than that of standard body weight. Conclusion The primary school students prevalence of overweight and obesity were rather high in Xuzhou, but the value of OOR was within the acceptable range and the high tendency may be controlled or held back by taking effective measures.
