Tasmanian Population Health Survey 2022
The Tasmanian Population Health Survey occurs every 3 years. Public Health Services develops and manages the survey. The first survey ran in 2009, with further surveys completed in 2013, 2016, and 2019.
The most recent survey occurred between September and November 2022. We called around 4,000 Tasmanians to ask about factors that influence their health and wellbeing.
Thank you to everyone who took part in the survey.
The information collected helps us assess the health of Tasmanians over time and to understand emerging health issues. The findings from the survey are also used to inform planning for services and programs to improve health and wellbeing.
The survey included questions on:
- Causes of ill health (such as access to food, type of home heating)
- Chronic conditions (such as diabetes)
- Health behaviours (such as physical activity levels)
- Problems accessing health care
- Current health status
The survey results will now be analysed and will be made available on the Department of Health webpage for Epidemiology Publications. A key findings report and a full report will be available in early 2023. Previous reports are available on our epidemiology publications page.
