## prevalence rate and 95%CI for BMI across age groups and gender

Hi Apologies this is my first post to this group.

I wish to calculate the prevalence rate and 95% confidence intervals for people by BMI category and age group by sex to produce the table below. Could you advise? Thanks for your help!

| Sex |   age group                       |  underweight | healthy            | overweight      | obese               |  Total

| M    | 20-<30years                   | Prev (95%CI) | Prev (95%CI)  |Prev (95%CI)  |Prev (95%CI)  |Prev (95%CI)  |   etc

18.5-<25 = 'Healthy (18.5-<25)'
25-<30 = 'Overweight (25-<30)'
30-51 = 'Obese (30+)';
