The Australia National Health Survey 2014-2015 was conducted across all states and territories with the exception of remote areas, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Community dwellings like hotels, hospitals, old-age homes, and caravan parks were also excluded from the survey. Approximately 14,700 dwellings were included in the sample. Households underwent further sub-sampling, in which one adult over the age of 18 and one child under the age of 17 were randomly selected for participation and interviewing. The survey collected information on nutrition, alcohol consumption, anthropometrics, obesity, smoking, health status, and health conditions.
