Profiles of Health (cat. no. 4338.0) provides a comprehensive statistical overview of people's health in Australia. This product was first released on the 29 October 2012 and is designed to be updated progressively.

The First Results publication presents information on long-term health conditions and health risk factors from the NHS sample (that is, 20,500 people). The Health Services and Health Related Actions publication presents information on use of health services and actions people take for their health (for example, medication use).

The Updated Results publication presents information on health risk factors (such as tobacco smoking, Body Mass Index and fruit and vegetable intake); selected long-term health conditions and blood pressure. With a larger sample size of the combined NHS and NNPAS dataset (approximately 32,000 people), this publication provides more accurate estimates and allows for analysis at a finer level of disaggregation.

The Physical Activity publication presents information on detailed adult and child physical activity and sedentary behaviours (with particular focus on screen-based activities) derived from self-reported and pedometer collection methods in the NNPAS. Information is presented with selected population characteristics and health risk factors.

The Biomedical Results for Chronic Diseases publication presents the first results from the NHMS and presents information on biomarkers of chronic disease, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes and chronic kidney function.

The Biomedical Results for Nutrients publication presents the second results from the NHMS and presents information on nutrient biomarkers, including iron, folate, iodine, vitamin D and vitamin B12.

The Nutrition First Results - Foods and Nutrients publication presents information on Foods and Nutrients reported consumed on the Day 1 24-hour dietary recalls and selected dietary behaviours from the NNPAS.

The Usual Nutrient Intakes publication presents information on the usual intake of nutrients from foods as modelled from data collected from Day 1 and Day 2 24-hour dietary recalls.
