The incidence of American obesity hit its highest point ever last year, 27.7% of the population, according to Gallup’s report on Obesity Rankings released on Wednesday.

“Nationally, the incidence of obesity is at its highest level, rising to 27.7% in 2014, up from 27.1% in 2013 and significantly above the 25.5% recorded in 2008,” reported the survey.

The survey is the third in Gallup’s annual Well-Being Index, though Gallup has been tracking obesity rates since 2008.

The figure was calculated by asking 2.2 million Americans to self-report their height and weight, from which Gallup calculated their Body Mass Index (BMI). Individuals with a BMI of 30 or higher are classified as obese.
