This is a summary of the first stage of research, which was carried out in March 2012, that records how health behaviours vary across life stages.
The report is the first of a series of twice yearly surveys which track core health behaviours, their interactions and influences, and how these vary across key life stages.
This survey forms a baseline against which changes in behaviour over time and seasonal variations can be assessed. The report informs the Department of Health Social Marketing Strategy.
