The Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health (ALSWH) is a longitudinal study of over 57,000 women, and is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health. Three cohorts who were aged 18-23, 45-50 and 70-75 were recruited in 1996, and a fourth cohort, aged 18-23, were recruited in 2012/2013.

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.
