National Health and Lifestyle Survey 1998
Two baseline surveys of health related behaviours among adults and school-going young people were carried out across the Republic of Ireland in 1998. The main aims of the surveys were to:
Produce reliable baseline data for a representative cross-section of the Irish population which will inform the Department of Health and Children’s future policy and programme planning
Establish a survey protocol which will enable lifestyle factors to be re-measured so that trends can be identified and changes monitored to assist national and regional setting of priorities in health promotion activities.
