Victorian Population Health Survey 2008 - VHISS

The data in the reporting module is based on the data collected through the Victorian Population Health Survey (VPHS) 2008. The VPHS is an important component of the population health surveillance capacity of the Department of Health.

The VPHS has been conducted each year since 2001, and previously was based on a sample of approximate 7500 adults aged 18 years and over, randomly selected from households in the state. In 2008, the sample was expanded to approximately 34,000 to enable analysis at the local government area (LGA) level. The VPHS is an ongoing source of high quality information on the health and wellbeing of Victorian adults. Further information about the VPHS, methods, and previous survey reports can be found on Health Status of Victorians website.
