The aim of this qualitative research was to understand decision-making for policies impacting obesity and community health, and perspectives on obesity and related health disparities among local policymakers from municipalities experiencing obesity disparities. The dataset includes transcripts from 20 semi-structured interviews with local elected and top-appointed officials from municipalities across the United States, conducted between December 2020 and April 2021. The Institutional Review Board of Washington University in St. Louis approved this study (#202001197).
