Figure 1: Distribution of BMI2016 vs. BMI2015: pooled sample. Note: the figures refer to the pooled sample of 841 (1,305) women and men above 67 years (above 62 years) with available information on BMI2016 and BMI2015. Given that the retirement age for men (women) in Israel is 67 years (62 years), these ages were chosen as the cutoff points. BMI_PER equals . For the above 67 years cohort (above 62 years cohort), the null hypothesis, average(BMI2016) = average(BMI2015) cannot be rejected. The value is 0.6025 (0.4998).
