Overwt: overweight; HOMA-IR: homeostasis model assessment-insulin resistance; ATP-III: Adult Treatment Panel III; SEM: standard error of the mean; NHW: non-Hispanic white; NHB: non-Hispanic black; MA: Mexican American. Data analyzed using SAS survey regression procedure (continuous) or survey frequency procedure (categorical). values indicate significant differences between metabolic health and body mass index categories within definitions.
