Publisher: Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health, 2005
Status – CURRENT
In 1996 over 40,000 Australian women were invited take part in a long term project which would survey the health of women across the nation, over time. The participants were selected in three age cohorts: younger women aged 18-23, mid-age women aged 45-50, and older women aged 70-75. These groups were deliberately chosen in order to recruit women before they passed through major turning points in women’s lives. With eight years of change now tracked in the surveys, the study is providing insights into major trends in the lives of Australian women.
