The Picture Project

Young adult life is commonly a time of many changes, including changes in living circumstances, work arrangements or commitments, financial circumstances and other major life transitions such as marriage and starting families.

The Picture Project is an online survey of 10,000 Australians, aged 18-30, in 2017/18 and repeated in 2019/20. It has been set up to look at the eating behaviour, physical activity, sedentary behaviour and health of young adults and to track changes that may occur over time.  We are actively seeking participants in this important project.


Why are we looking at 18-30 year olds?

We know young adult life is commonly a time of many changes, including changes in living circumstances, work arrangements or commitments, financial circumstances and other major life transitions such as marriage and starting families. Our previous research shows us these major life transitions have the potential to impact on health behaviours such as eating and physical activity.
