To the Editor: Few reports have been published on bone mineral density (BMD) among randomly sampled populations. Organisations such as Osteoporosis Australia and the Australian and New Zealand Bone and Mineral Society rely on research to supply reliable data that are representative of the Australian community. This information informs practitioners, researchers and policymakers of the size of the problem of osteoporosis in Australia. Our study aimed to document the proportion of individuals who have reduced BMD.
