This publication contains the first biomedical results from the 2011-13 Australian Health Survey. It presents information on biomarkers of chronic disease, including objective prevalence rates for biomedical risk factors for cardiovascular disease, diabetes and chronic kidney function. The information is available by a range of demographic variables and health risk factors. Information on nutrition biomarkers, such as vitamin D, iron and iodine, will be released in late 2013.

The Australian Statistician has approved, in exceptional circumstances, a 9:30am AEDT lockup for this product.

It is important from a public good perspective that key Ministers are able to respond in an informed manner to requests from the media about the statistics in this product and thereby avoid any inadvertent misinterpretation.

Approval is required for representatives of Government departments wishing to attend this lockup. Requests must be submitted no later than 1 business day before the lockup is scheduled to start.
