Child and Adolescent Physical Activity and Nutrition Survey (CAPANS)

CAPANS, 2003 & 2008

The Physical Activity Taskforce conducted the Child and Adolescent Physical Activity and Nutrition (CAPANS) survey to provide a measure of physical activity levels and nutrition behaviours of West Australian children and adolescents. The survey has been conducted in 2003 and 2008.

This comprehensive data then helps to inform policy, programs and practice to encourage physical activity and improve healthy active behaviours in children.

Where possible, comparisons between the 2003 and 2008 CAPANS findings have been made.
