About this publication
This publication presents overweight and obesity data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics 2007-08 National Health Survey (NHS) and 1995 National Nutrition Survey (NNS).
ABS publications draw extensively on information provided freely by individuals, businesses, governments and other organisations. Their continued cooperation is very much appreciated - without it, the wide range of statistics published by the ABS would not be available. Information received by the ABS is treated in strict confidence as required by the Census and Statistics Act 1905.
