Insights Reports

Ten to Men Insights reports showcase the breadth of data collected for the study and disseminate its findings in an accessible format to diverse audiences, including health care providers, the general public, researchers and policy makers. These publications aim to address research gaps, provide a broad overview of the health of males in Australia, and highlight specific concerns affecting this group, especially in relation to priority areas outlined in the National Men’s Health Strategy 2020-2030.

  • Insights Reports #1 was the first major publication of Ten to Men findings to be produced by AIFS after the study transitioned to the Institute from the University of Melbourne in 2017. Using data from the first two waves of the study, it comprises four empirical chapters with distinct topics covering issues relating to: mental health, alcohol use, overweight and obesity, and health literacy and health service use among Australian males.
  • Insights Reports #2 was released in 2022. This is the first report to use all three waves of published Ten to Men data. The report covers issues relating to: mental health, substance abuse, gambling and natural disasters.
