A Framework For Monitoring Overweight And Obesity In NSW

12 November 2012

Monitoring of population weight status is valuable in order to track changes and identify likely causes and implications, and to adjust policy and program priorities. A monitoring framework sets out what information should be collected, when and how it should be collected, and systems for the reporting of this information. The framework covers dietary behaviours, physical activity and sedentary behaviours, food environment factors, physical activity environment factors, socio-demographic and other factors.
