This information paper discusses the process and outcomes of the Evaluation of the Australian Health Survey.
The Australian Government Department of Health commissioned the ABS to conduct the AHS Evaluation to investigate the following:
- Whether expectations regarding the population health information gaps were met.
- How the data have been used, particularly with respect to the inter-relationships between the NHS data items and those in the AHS.
- The perceived value and expected impact of the AHS data.
- Future data requirements and frequency with which the information is required.
- Improvements with respect to collection, quality and outputs that should be considered in the future.
