Through its population survey program, the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) collects and disseminates a broad range of public health information to assist decision making, debate and discussion on all aspects of health, illness and related behaviours. While some surveys are conducted regularly, others have been conducted on an ad hoc basis or with funding from users. Table 1 shows the key health surveys conducted by the ABS to date, and indicates the frequency with which they will be conducted in the future.
