This systematic review was commissioned to address the question: What do we know about the relationship between childhood obesity and educational attainment, from the research literature? The systematic review was published by EPPI-Centre in 2011. Systematic reviews aim to find as much as possible of the research relevant to the particular research questions, and use explicit methods to identify what can reliably be said on the basis of these studies.
