Substudies

Many participants have been invited to help by answering additional surveys outside of the major three yearly surveys. 'Substudies' is the term used to describe these additional surveys and we thank everyone who has so willingly taken part in these. These surveys target particular areas of health, and have covered a wide range of topics including sleeping difficulties and disturbances, domestic violence, menopausal problems, urinary incontinence, leisure and time, diabetes and the future plans of younger women.
The following is a list of past and present substudies conducted with data from the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women's Health:
