This First Results publication presents information on long-term health conditions and health risk factors from the NHS sample (i.e. 20,500 people). Information on use of health services and actions people take for their health (for example, medication use) is scheduled for release in March 2013.

Results from the AHS core sample (the full 33,500 people) will be released in June 2013. This will include new estimates for some data items published in this First Results publication. It is expected that prevalence rates for these indicators at a broad level are unlikely to change, however sampling error associated with the estimates from the core sample is expected to be lower than the estimates from the NHS sample (due to the larger sample size).

Survey questionnaires and the full list of data items for the general population will be progressively made available in the Australian Health Survey: Users' Guide, 2011-13 (cat. no. 4363.0.55.001) scheduled for release in November 2012.
