Young Australian women are fatter, fitter and more frazzled today than they were nearly 20 years ago, according to the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health researchers. The 17-year study, led by the University of Queensland’s Professor Gita Mishra and the University of Newcastle’s Professor Julie Byles, found that 70 per cent of women aged between 18 and 23 in 2010 met Australian guidelines for physical activity, compared with 59 per cent in 1996. Read the full media release HERE.

A brief summary of findings is available in our ‘Then and Now’ video. The full report is available on our website: Health and wellbeing of women aged 18 to 23 in 2013 and 1996: Findings from the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health.
