Aims + Outcomes

The purpose of this follow-up survey was to better understand migrant settlement experiences over the last 12 months. These included changes in your employment situation since the first survey, satisfaction with life in Australia and participation in further education.

Methods

The survey primarily focussed on collecting information about recent migrants (including new visa holders) to understand their experiences in migrating to Australia.

The survey also collected information on partners of recent migrants and/or new visa holders to understand experiences for this group of individuals. To do this, the survey asked for some information about you. This may have included personal information, such as employment status and income.

The follow-up survey could be completed online or over the phone.

What are the benefits?

The results of the survey will be used to determine how effective the Department’s current policies are. The results will also help the Department understand how well migrants are settling into Australia and the types of issues migrants experience. Understanding these factors enables the Australian Government to provide better settlement services for migrants and to improve Australia’s Migration Program.

FAQs

Who is included in the survey? 

The Department is surveying recent Family and Skill stream migrants who have been granted a permanent residence visa or are on the path to permanent residence after being granted a provisional visa. Invited participants completed a survey at the end of 2022.

Can someone else answer for me, like my partner, child or parent?

If you have difficulties understanding English, another member of your household can assist you when answering the survey. The SRC also has interviewers who speak a range of other languages.

What if nothing has changed in the last 12 months?

We would still like you to take part in the survey, as this is valuable information and the follow-up survey does contain some questions we haven’t asked before.

Can I take part from overseas? 

To give you the best opportunity to participate, the survey will be run over several weeks. If you are away for longer than this, then it is unlikely that you’ll be able to take part.
