Sydney’s suburbs rated by health opportunities

The Domain Healthy Sydney study, authored by Deloitte Access Economics and Tract Consultants, compares 569 Sydney suburbs across 10 indicators that either help or hinder residents from leading a healthy lifestyle.

These include walkability, access to fresh food, proximity to hospitals and allied health facilities as well as hindrance factors like density of fast food and liquor stores.

Based on the scores across these indicators, each suburb was given a rating out of five stars.  It’s important to note the study is about place, not people – it is designed to increase understanding of the opportunities suburbs provide residents to live a healthy lifestyle.
