Abstract

From January 2002, continuous data collection under the NSW Health Survey Program (HSP) will commence. The new continuous Health Survey data collection will focus on providing information to support the public health priority areas outlined in Healthy People 2005—New directions for public health in NSW: social determinants of health, individual or behavioural determinants of health, major health problems, population groups with special needs, settings, partnerships, and infrastructure. This article describes the proposed changes to the HSP and how they will affect users and collaborators.
