OBJECTIVES This study explored the relationship between the proportion of coffee shops and gyms and obesity rate in the community, and what aspects of coffee shops and gyms associate to the constantly increasing rate of obesity. METHODS The numbers of coffee shops and gyms were extracted and gathered from an open source run by the Seoul Metropolitan Government. The obesity rate was extracted from Statistics Korea. We made a yearly panel data which includes 11 years of data from 2008 to 2018 for a total of 25 districts of Seoul, the capital city of Korea later sorted to 9 regions. Multivariate linear regression analysis was performed on the obesity rate. The analysis was carried out using IBM’s SPSS Statistics 25. RESULTS The analysis to determine the correlation between the proportion of businesses and obesity rate showed that when the ratio of the number of gyms to businesses increased by 0.1%p, the obesity rate decreased by 1.0%p (p<0.05). Also, when the ratio of the number of coffee shops to businesses increased by 0.1%p, the obesity rate decreased by 0.27%p (p<0.10). CONCLUSIONS There is a negative correlation between the obesity rates and the proportion of gyms and coffee shops among businesses.
