The Victorian Agency for Health Information (VAHI) released the results from the Victorian Population Health Survey (VPHS) 2018, completed by over 7,000 Victorian adults. The survey was first undertaken in 2001 and is an ongoing source of high-quality information on the health and wellbeing of Victorian adults. The information collected in the annual survey is used to inform and support planning, implementation and evaluation of adult population health and other health programs in Victoria.
The 2018 survey captured information from 7,100 adult Victorians, across the following domains: obesity, physical activity, fruit and vegetable consumption, smoking status, alcohol consumption, mental health and wellbeing, chronic diseases, preventative health checks, eye health, social capital, and palliative care.
