  • Long-term health conditions - People living in the Greater Hobart area were more likely to have a long term condition, for most types of conditions, than the rest of the state.
  • Cancer - For the period January 2001 to December 2003, lung and colo-rectal cancer killed more Tasmanians than any other types of cancer.
  • Risk factors - Results from the National Health Survey indicate that in 2004-05 persons living in Greater Hobart were, in general, less likely to engage in behaviour risky to their health. They were less likely to smoke, be overweight or obese, and more likely to exercise, compared to the rest of Tasmania. However, persons in Greater Hobart were more likely to consume risky levels of alcohol than those living elsewhere in Tasmania.
