Report No.19 turns the spotlight on Australians’ health, which is particularly timely in view of the latest Federal Budget promising an increase to the retirement age, changes to the unemployment benefits, an end to free doctor visits and changes to Medicare.

In conjunction with Alere, Roy Morgan Research developed the Alere Wellness Index, which tracks Australians’ health across seven metrics: nutrition, exercise and fitness, BMI, alcohol consumption, smoking rates, medical issues and mental health.

This Spotlight reveals how Australians fare across these categories, and examines some unexpected impacts of age, socio-economic status, geography, employment and attitude on aspects of wellbeing.

The questions raised and explored in this Spotlight will give policy-makers, health organisations, insurers, pharmaceutical companies and medical practitioners insight into the real-world balancing act that constitutes today’s healthy lifestyle - and which Australians are falling behind.
