AHMS - A National Biomedical Risk Factor Survey for Australia: Issues for consideration


AHMS Working Paper Series No. 1

National population health surveys containing a component of physical measurement have been used both in Australia and overseas to add to the information about the state of health of a population and to complement research into particular issues, diseases or directions in health policy. This short paper outlines some of the issues that require consideration as part of the initial scoping of these types of surveys in general, and will report briefly on some of the models that have been used overseas.

The papers in the AHMS Working Paper Series were prepared by PHIDU staff as background material to the development of a national biomedical risk factor survey for Australia.
