The Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health (ALSWH) is a longitudinal survey of over 58,000 women in three cohorts who were aged 18-23, 45-50 and 70-75 when surveys began in 1996. In 2012/13 more than 17,000 young women aged 18-23 were recruited to form a new cohort. The study is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and is scheduled to continue until at least 2020.
The ALSWH examines demographic, social, physical, psychological, and behavioural variables and their effect on major aspects of women’s health and well-being and health service use. The surveys cover major diagnosed diseases, symptoms, health behaviours, use of health services and medications, and a range of factors relating to psychological well-being, social roles, and life events. Since its inception ALSWH has provided invaluable data about the health of women across the lifespan, and informed federal and state government policies across a wide range of issues.
