The Regional Wellbeing Survey’s mission is to support research that improves the wellbeing and quality of life of people living in rural and regional Australia. To achieve this, each year we ask people across Australia to take part in our survey.Taking part lets you have your say on issues ranging from how your community is changing, your health, and your wellbeing. This year’s focus is on drought, your experience with drought and how it has affected you, your household, or your local community.

All survey participants aged 18 or over can enter the draw with a chance to win one of 18 prizes to the total value of $7,000.. You can choose to do a short or regular version of the survey. The survey is voluntary, confidential and anonymous, and closes 14 December 2018, at midnight. Thank you for taking the time to participate and sharing your valuable insights

The Regional Wellbeing Survey is an annual survey of residents living in Australia's rural and regional areas. First conducted in 2013, it examines the wellbeing of people in rural and regional communities, and how this wellbeing is influenced by the many social, economic and environmental changes occurring in these communities. The results of the survey enable the provision of insights that support the development of strategies to build wellbeing, resilience and adaptive capacity in rural and regional Australia. The survey produces high quality data from University of Canberra researchers committed to examining the issues that matter to people living in rural and regional Australia.
