SINGAPORE: The Health Ministry will be conducting a national survey from this month till June next year to gather information on the general health status and lifestyle practices of Singaporeans.

The results will be used to track the health of the population and the progress that has been made in reaching national health targets.

The information will also be used for planning and evaluating health promotion programmes and healthcare services.

A ministry statement said 18,000 households will be randomly selected to take part in the survey.

These households will receive a letter informing them of the arrangements.

Participants will be interviewed about their health and lifestyle habits, and have their height and weight measurements taken in their homes.

The ministry said individual information collected in the survey will be kept confidential and only aggregated data will be published.

It urged the selected households to support the survey, which independent research company Market Probe Asia-Pacific Pte Ltd has been commissioned to carry out.
