National Health Surveillance Survey 2007


National Health Surveillance Survey 2007

The Ministry of Health will be conducting the National Health Surveillance Survey from July 2007 to February 2008 to obtain information on the general health status and lifestyle practices of Singaporeans.
The results of the Survey will be used by the Ministry to evaluate the effectiveness of the government¨s national disease control plans, and to chart the progress towards achieving its long-term health targets.
Twelve thousand households have been randomly selected to participate in the Survey. These households will receive a letter from the Ministry by 2 July 2007 informing them of the Survey.
The Ministry hopes that all selected households will give their full support and cooperation for the Survey. Individual information collected for the Survey will be kept strictly confidential and only aggregated data will be published.
An independent research company, The Research Pacific Group Pte Ltd, has been commissioned to carry out the Survey. Interviewers from the company will don an identification tag bearing their name, photograph and the company¨s official stamp when conducting the Survey. They will also carry a letter of authorisation from the Ministry.
This is the second National Health Surveillance Survey carried out by the Ministry of Health. The first was conducted in 2001.
