This publication presents information about the Australian Health Survey conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) in 2011-12. Specifically it contains information about the Australian Health Survey product that presents microdata from the National Nutrition and Physical Activity Survey (NNPAS), 2011-12 component of the Australian Health Survey in the form of a TableBuilder dataset, a basic confidentialised unit record file (CURF) and an expanded CURF. The Table Builder and expanded CURF include detailed information on both the Nutrition and Physical Activity components, as well as biomedical information from the National Health Measures Survey (NHMS) of the AHS for NNPAS respondents who agreed to participate. The basic CURF focusses on the Nutrition component.
The aim of this publication is to assist users of the microdata to better understand both the nature of the survey and its potential shortcomings in meeting their data needs. A list of output data items currently available for the TableBuilder and the CURFs can be found in the Downloads tab of this publication.
Information about the design and conduct of the Australian Health Survey in general is also presented.
