This report describes the new recruitment methods used for the 1989-95 cohort of young women of the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health, and the resultant representativeness of the cohort with respect to women of the same age in the Australian population. Women in the cohort were aged 18 to 23 in 2013 and the report provides a snapshot of their health, health behaviours and health service use. Where possible a comparison is drawn with women of the same age range in 1996, by using baseline data from the 1973-78 cohort.
