Weight loss practices of mid-aged women: Longitudinal data analysis
In this study, we are examining the longer term weight outcomes for the mid-age women according to the way in which they report to have attempted weight control. We will also examine the associations between weight control and self-defined class, socioeconomic factors (ability to manage on income, education, occupation, area of residence). This study is the first in Australia to use a representative population sample to examine the relationships between socio-demographic factors and the weight control practices used by mid-age women over time.
