This project conducts periodic surveys of the Australian population to determine their views about a range of obesity policy options. Some surveys have also included questions to determine public awareness of particular aspects of nutrition. Output is in the form of reports for the Obesity Policy Coalition (jointly funded by Cancer Council Victoria, Diabetes Australia (Victoria), VicHealth and Deakin University) or other project-specific funding partners, with findings of particular note submitted for peer-reviewed journal publication.
