Australia's largest family: Institute conducts Defence Force Census

Gregg Snider
Family Matters No. 30, 1991

In March 1991 a census was undertaken of the 69,275 full time active duty members of the Australian Defence Force (ADF) by the Australian Institute of Family Studies. Because little was known about the families of serving members, the bulk of the questionnaire was designed to elicit information on family composition and service related family problems. This article presents an overview of some of the findings of the census relating to family composition; characteristics of serving members; partners and partnerships; children at home; and work and family issues.
