Interactive data on health risk factors and the neighbourhood environment

The interactive data visualisations below complement the PDF report and summary by enabling users to explore the data in more detail by filtering/customising the data and focus the figures to meet their information needs.

These data visualisations use data for Australian adults aged 18 and over from the 2017–18 Australian Bureau of Statistics National Health Survey. Further details on methodology and derivations can be found in the technical notes accordion below as well as the notes supplied within the supplementary data tables.

The interactive data visualisation provides an illustrative landing page to navigate various figures by clicking on the button of interest. These various figures further explore the relationship between proximity to fast-food outlets, supermarkets and public open spaces as well as average commuting distance with risk factors to health by socioeconomic area. All the data included in the visualisations can be found in the supplementary data tables.
