Evidence and data

Wellbeing SA is leading and enabling evidence based action to support health and wellbeing across South Australia.

Our agency’s Epidemiology Branch coordinates ongoing statewide monitoring and surveillance activities and is the custodian of significant data collections concerning the health and wellbeing of the South Australian community.

We respond to requests for data, evidence and evaluation services to support the delivery of prevention activities, health planning and program delivery. We contribute ongoing data to support state and national reporting and provide summary reports of our analysis along with insights to the health and wellbeing of the South Australian community.
