What does “every fourth person” mean?

What does this mean?

“every fourth person is fat.”


Line everyone up and have them count off by fours:

one – two – three – four – one – two – etc.

Then on average, the author is claiming that every person calling out “four” is fat.

This is equivalent to, but more picturesque than, 25%.
