Abstract

This is the second of a series of quarterly reports on the
surveillance of the health status, health behaviours, and
risk factors of the people of NSW, which will be produced
from the Continuous NSW Health Survey. The first
quarterly report covered the period March to December
2002. Ten indicators have been selected for inclusion in
the quarterly report. These have been chosen either
because they are of ongoing interest or because seasonal
variation is possible (Figure 1). The Continuous NSW
Health Survey is conducted by the Centre for
Epidemiology and Research, through the Department of
Health’s computer-assisted telephone interviewing
facility. The data described in this report are based on the
respondents described in Table 1. Although prevalence
estimates only are shown in the graphs, 95 per cent
confidence intervals have been calculated and these are
available on request from the NSW Health Survey
Program.
