This publication is the second release of nutrition results from the 2011-13 Australian Health Survey (AHS). It presents national level information on the usual intake of selected nutrients by the Australian population. Information collected in the 2011-13 AHS about the population's eating patterns has been modelled to enable estimates of the proportions of the population with excessive, adequate and inadequate nutrient intakes to be determined. The information in this publication is intended to complement the first release of 2011-13 AHS nutrition results which included average intakes of foods and nutrients.
This publication was jointly prepared and released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) and Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ).
