Formatted abstract
Much has been published about rural health disadvantage in Australia, including a series of reports by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW). The AIHW concludes: "... it is not currently possible to apportion the generally poorer health outcomes outside major cities to access, environment or risk factor issues. It is likely that each of these three play a part." (AIHW, 2011)

The Australian Longitudinal Study on Women‘s Health (ALSWH) is well-placed to elucidate these reasons using detailed data provided by women from across Australia. ALSWH is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing and conducted by the University of Newcastle and the University of Queensland. ALSWH participants have taken part in five surveys over 15 years and many have consented to use of linked data from Medicare Australia.
