A range of physical measurements are collected in ABS health surveys, 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.
