Full description

Very limited data exist for chronic diseases and their risk factors and behaviours in the Greater Green Triangle (GGT) region, or anywhere in rural Australia. To identify health problems and to target interventions and monitor their impact it is necessary to have objective data on chronic disease risk factors. Three cross-sectional surveys were carried out in 2004, 2005 and 2006 in the GGT region in the south east of Australia. In 2004 the survey area was the Limestone Coast in South Australia, 2005 the Corangamite Shire in the south west of Victoria, and in 2006 the Wimmera district in central western Victoria. The data comprises physical measurements and results of blood samples that were taken from patients by specially trained survey nurses. It also comprises data extracted from follow up survey questionnaires that were sent to each patient who returned them through the mail.


Notes

These datasets were sourced from manually taken samples and measurements and a print follow up questionnaire. In total 1690 randomly selected persons aged 25 to 84 years participated in the surveys which included a self-administered questionnaire, physical measurements, and a venous blood specimen to analyse fasting plasma lipids and glucose. The methodologies used were the internationally accepted standards. Details about the content and/or structure of the data can be found in Greater Green Triangle Risk Factor Study basic report.
