Abstract

The 1998 Health Education Monitoring Survey (HEMS) was the fourth survey in the series, and was carried out with two aims in mind: to continue to monitor the health promotion indicators relating to health-related knowledge, attitudes and behaviour and to investigate the links between social inequality, social support, social capital, health and health behaviours. The purpose of the 1995 Health Education Monitoring Survey (HEMS) was to provide a baseline measure of a set of health promotion indicators relating to health-related knowledge, attitudes and behaviour.
