Consumes fast food monthly - adults


    Consumes fast food monthly, 18 years and over, ACT General Health Survey, 2011-2020


    Between 2019 and 2020, the proportion of respondents to the ACT General Health Survey aged 18 years and over who eat fast food meals or snacks monthly has remained relatively stable (2019: 30.5%, 2020: 32.1%). Fast food includes burgers, pizza, chicken or chips from places like McDonalds, Hungry Jacks, Pizza Hut, KFC, Red Rooster, or local take-away places. 

    The estimate is based on respondents who consume any number of fast food meals or snacks monthly.

    Note: The indicator shows self-reported data collected through Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI). Estimates were weighted to adjust for differences in the probability of selection among respondents and were benchmarked to the estimated residential population using the latest available Australian Bureau of Statistics population estimates.

    Persons includes male, female, other and refused sex respondents and may not always add to the sum of male and female.

    Statistically significant differences are difficult to detect for smaller jurisdictions such as the Australian Capital Territory. Sometimes, even large apparent differences may not be statistically significant. This is particularly the case in breakdowns of small populations because the small sample size means that there is not enough power to identify even large differences as statistically significant.
