This product was formerly known as the Australian Health Survey, National Health Survey. The Australian Health Survey (AHS) contained National Health Survey data, as well as additional content that was collected in the National Health Measures Survey and the National Nutrition and Physical Activity Survey, 2011-12. This product, from the NHS 2014-15, reflects a return to the three yearly NHS time series, which began in partnership with the Department of Health in 2001.


This publication presents information about the TableBuilder dataset produced from the National Health Survey which was conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) throughout Australia from July 2014 to June 2015.

The aim of this publication is to assist users of the microdata to better understand both the nature of the survey, and its potential and shortcomings in meeting their data needs. A list of output data items currently available for the TableBuilder can be found in the Downloads tab of this publication.

As data from the National Health Survey are scheduled to be released progressively from 2016 onwards, accompanying explanatory material for each release will be added to this publication as it becomes available.
