HEALTH RISK FACTORS


A range of genetic, social, economic and environmental factors are recognised as increasing the risk of developing a particular health condition. Specific lifestyle and related factors which have been identified as negatively impacting health include:
  • being overweight or obese;
  • smoking and excessive alcohol consumption;
  • poor diet and nutrition; and
  • lack of physical activity.

Information about health risk factors and behaviours can be used along with information about other health and population characteristics to enable a better understanding of Australia's overall health and how it can be improved.
