Powered by Roy Morgan Research’s Single Source survey of over 50,000 Australians a year, the new Medibank Better Health Index is Australia’s most up-to-date and comprehensive quarterly health monitor. Based on interviews with approximately 1,000 Australians each week since 2007, the Index offers an in-depth look into the state of the nation’s health and how it is changing. The Medibank Better Health Index is centred on seven health indicators: Nutrition, Fitness, Body Mass, Medical Health, Mental Health, Smoking and Alcohol. Combined, these make up an overall Health Index Score, which tracks how Australia’s health is faring over time. The Health Index Score started from a base of 100 in 2007, and has since increased to 102.12. This higher score represents an overall improvement in the nation’s Health, taking into account better scores in our Fitness, Nutrition, Medical Health, Smoking and Alcohol, but some declines in BMI and Mental Health over the period.
