Research group: Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health

Organisational unit: School of Public Health

Researchers within the School of Public Health Centre for Longitudinal and Life Course Research have been collecting data for over 25 years on women in the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women's Health (ALSWH). We have also collected data on almost 6000 children (aged from 0-12) of participants in the 1973-78 cohort from the ALSWH, in the Mothers and their Children's Health Study. With over 20 years of data on their mothers from the ALSWH, and data on a wide variety of aspects of their children's health (including physical, cognitive, social and emotional development, behaviour, diet and physical activity, screen time, health-related quality of life, illness and disability, health service use, sleep,and anthropometric measures) there is a fantastic opportunity for research students who are interested in these areas and with statistical experience to join our center to undertake PhD research.
