Families in Australia Survey: Life during COVID-19
Life during COVID-19 will explore how Australians are coping with the Coronavirus pandemic
The Families in Australia Survey is AIFS’ most comprehensive survey. Its scope is every person in every type of family. Its aim is to show how families and the individuals in them adapt to social, economic and personal circumstances.
Life during COVID-19 is our first Families in Australia Survey. It will paint a picture of how everyday Australians are coping with and adjusting to the Coronavirus pandemic, one of the greatest health, social and economic challenges in world history.
AIFS will share the insights drawn from the Families in Australia Survey with the general public and with non-government and government agencies, to help them develop the supports that families need.
