Who is at risk of weight gain? Findings from the ALSWH study.
After two decades’ work on obesity prevention, it is important to know whether programs have been effective, by examining the current weight problems of young Australian women. This paper aims to compare the differences in annual rate of weight gain of two cohorts of women aged 18-23 in 1996 and 2012/13. It also aims to examine the differences in sociodemographic and health determinants of high weight gain in the two cohorts, to understand whether the determinants have remained consistent from 1996 to 2012/13.
