The Victorian Population Health Survey (VPHS) is an annual survey run by VicHealth to track the health and wellbeing of Victorians. Every 3 years since 2008, the survey has been conducted at an LGA level (n=400 sample per Local Government area) and this local data is often used by Councils to inform their health and wellbeing planning and track outcomes.

The 2008, 2011, 2014 and 2017 data by LGA can be found here: VHISS

As you can see by the sequence of years, 2020 should have been the next round of LGA level surveying, however this didn’t occur due to COVID-19. Instead, a special COVID-19 version of the survey was run in 2020 at LGA level (The survey questions can be found at the end of this report).

If you want to see the results of this COVID-19 survey by LGA you can request the data through the VAHI Data Request Hub.

The next standard LGA level VPHS survey is scheduled to be conducted in 2023.
