|Title:||Comparability of Dietary Measures Among NSW Children and Adolescents|
Public health nutrition
|Abstract:||The measurement of lifestyle behaviours among child and adolescent populations is challenging. Existing population based surveys of lifestyle and anthropometric variables have used different instruments and modes of administration, however all have to some extent collected data on the same types of variables for assessing dietary intake and food related behaviours. The purpose of this report was to collate estimates of dietary indicators for young people across different population-based surveys conducted in NSW between 1995 and 2010, and compare estimates according to age group, survey methods, the different population survey questions, by age group and respondent (child versus parent). The results of this report provide valuable information to guide the interpretation of population dietary surveillance data, and future decisions around population nutrition monitoring in NSW.|
