    TLDR Hair loss common in Australia; men affected earlier, more often than Asians; women less concerned.
    This document is a study on the prevalence and pattern of hair loss in the Australian community, specifically male and female pattern hair loss (MPHL and FPHL). The study found that MPHL is common and has an earlier onset and higher prevalence than in Asian populations. Bitemporal recession is significantly associated with mid-scalp hair loss in both males and females. The study also found that many women with FPHL do not consider it cosmetically significant or seek medical intervention. The study has limitations, including a low response rate and an over-representation of older age groups in the respondents.
