Purpose of the survey

This is an important national survey that collects information about the health of people in Australia.

Your participation is an opportunity to make a real difference. The information you provide will contribute to important decisions being made for your local area and the wider Australian community. These decisions relate to the planning and provision of services for carers, people who experience health conditions or disability, and the needs of an ageing population. To find out more about this survey, please see our Frequently Asked Questions below.

Thank you. We acknowledge and value your time and effort participating in this survey. It is only with the support of people like you that we can continue to produce the statistics that inform Australia's important decisions.
