WHAT IS THE HILDA SURVEY?

The Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (or HILDA) Survey is a household-based longitudinal survey, which aims to track all members of an initial sample of households over an indefinite life (in successive 'waves' of the survey). The survey is designed to collect data in three main areas: economic and subjective wellbeing, labour market dynamics and family dynamics. Wave 1 data was released in 2002 and enabled a detailed analysis of issues such as education, current employment and employment history, job search experience, income, health and wellbeing, child care, housing, family background, marital history and family formation, for those aged 15 years and over. The release of Wave 2 data (in 2003) allows for longitudinal analysis of these issues, along with a snapshot of the asset and debt holdings of Australian households.

Data from the HILDA survey is available by age, allowing for analysis of issues affecting youth and children within families.
