What best explains Australian women's demand for health services: age, disease or risk factors?
This study will utilize the data available from the ALSWH regarding participant’s usage of health services. The study will examine the usage patterns of participants in relation to their age, diseases they are prevalent for, and risk factor status. The study will build on the significant body of work already undertaken with the ALSWH regarding body weight, health service usage patterns, and the alternate explanatory variables including location, dietary patterns, insurance status, language spoken at home, and physical activity
