THE STRUCTURE OF THE AUSTRALIAN HEALTH SURVEY
STRUCTURE OF THE 2011-13 AUSTRALIAN HEALTH SURVEY
As shown in the above diagram, the AHS is made up of 3 components:
All people selected in the AHS were selected in either the NHS or the NNPAS, however data items in the core were common to both surveys and therefore information for these data items is available for all persons in the AHS. All people aged 5 years and older were then invited to participate in the voluntary NHMS.
Physical activity data for Adults were collected as part of the Core, and have previously been presented in the Australian Health Survey: First Results using NHS data. Demographic and other health risk factor data have also been previously presented either using NHS data only (4364.0.55.001 and 4364.0.55.002) or the combined sample data (4364.0.55.003). As results in this publication are from the NNPAS only, data presented in this publication differ from previously published data from the 2011-13 AHS.
INFORMATION FOR ABORIGINAL AND TORRES STRAIT ISLANDER PEOPLE
The AHS also includes an additional representative sample of around 13,000 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people which commenced in May 2012. This is a separate collection of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in remote and non-remote areas, including discrete communities. The structure is the same as outlined above, comprised of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Survey component, the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nutrition and Physical Activity component and the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Measures Survey component.
