Information about the general health of Australians is important and used by a wide variety of people, including Commonwealth and state/territory government bodies as well as medical professionals, researchers and academics.
General health information collected in the Australian Health Survey included asking respondents to assess their own health and also to answer questions aimed at assessing levels of psychological distress. This information complements that on long-term health conditions, health risk factors and physical measures, contributing to a broad picture of the overall health of Australians in 2011-12.
