Brief Description of the Collaboratory :


The BMI and All-Cause Mortality Pooling Project is a collaborative effort among more than 20 cohorts from the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) Cohort Consortium to quantify the risk associated with being overweight or obese and the extent to which the relationship between BMI and all-cause mortality varies by factors such as age, sex, smoking status, pre-existing heart disease or cancer, physical activity, alcohol intake, education, and marital status. This Project systematically analyzed pooled data from prospective studies encompassing 1.46 million adults to estimate hazard ratios for the association between BMI and all-cause mortality. The results were published in 2010.
