Families in Australia Survey: Towards COVID Normal
This second survey explored how Australians have adapted moving towards 'COVID normal'.
Following the first Life During COVID-19 survey (May-June 2020), AIFS launched its second Families in Australia Survey, Towards COVID Normal, in November 2020.
The Towards COVID Normal survey ran from 17 November to 22 December 2020. We asked Australians 18 years and over to tell us about how they and their families are going as we head heading towards a time that might be described as 'COVID normal'.
How has family, social and daily life changed? What challenges do families continue to face? And what support would help right now?
We wanted to understand how different aspects of family life continue to be affected by COVID-19, including: relationships with other family members; work; education; finances; and mental health and wellbeing.
A series of reports from the survey will be published in the first half of 2021.
