NATIONAL HEALTH SURVEY
The ABS 2001 National Health Survey (NHS) is underway. This is the fifth large scale survey of health conducted by the ABS. The survey is being conducted in about 20,000 private dwellings across Australia between February and December 2001. While mainly covering people aged 15 years and over, some data on children will also be collected. Some questions will be the same as those used in the 1995 NHS allowing for a comparison over time. The ABS 2001 National Health Survey also includes an Indigenous sample supplement. Results of the survey are expected to become available from September 2002.
