The data was collected by Commercial Monitors, an Australian advertising information service, from five major capital cities Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.

 The Productivity Commission's report Childhood Obesity: An Economic Perspective had stated in 2010, "...there is community concern about advertising that is aimed at children so industry has acted and produced encouraging outcomes."

Yet, the AFGC failed to provide previous figures to show the successful impact of self regulation.
