Health Patterns of Women in Rural Areas

The Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health reveals some interesting patterns on rural women. According to the study, rural women have more problems accessing medical services and tend to be more obese than women living in urban areas. However, women in rural areas are more likely to use alternative medicines and be satisfied with their lives.

The study is a collaboration between the University of Queensland and the University of Newcastle that examined the health of more than 40,000 young, middle-aged and older women since 1996.
