Differences in access to, and use of health services and information, among young women born in 1989-95 and 1973-78


The paper reports on the results of section 11 of Major Report I. This paper will describe young women’s access to, and use of, health services using data from the first survey of the 1989-95 cohort [New Young Cohort; (NYC)] and from Medicare. Where possible, it also compares health service use among the NYC to the previous cohort of young women born in 1973-78 (first surveyed in 1996) and examines whether this differs by sociodemographic characteristics and physical and mental health.
