PHYSICAL MEASUREMENTS

The 2011-13 Australian Health Survey collected physical measurements for people aged 2 years and over, including height, weight, waist circumference and blood pressure.

Information on physical measurements is particularly important for assessing health risk factors such as:
  • the proportion of Australians who are overweight or obese (using measured height and weight to calculate Body Mass Index); or
  • the proportion of people who have high blood pressure at the time of interview.



This section contains the following subsection :
      Height and weight
      Waist circumference
      Blood pressure
