    Psychosocial events, 18 years and over, ACT General Health Survey, 2019


    In 2019, the top three psychosocial events experienced by respondents to the ACT General Health Survey were the death of someone close (23.1%), a new job (20.7%) and moving house (15.0%).

    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.

    Respondents to the 2019 ACT General Health Survey were aged 18 years and over. Persons includes male, female, other sex and refused sex respondents.

    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.
