Growing Up in Australia - Study members


For children

A big Thank You for being part of the Growing Up in Australia study!

Wave 8 is underway!

The first phase of Wave 8 is about to start. Our Growing Up in Australia interviewers are gearing up to begin in-home visits soon.

Are you 18-19 year old?

Your online survey

At Wave 8 we're giving 18-19 year olds the opportunity to complete part of their survey online. By completing the online survey prior to your home interview, you will help to make your home interview shorter, and will have the chance to receive one of 50 $100 gift vouchers.

Before completing your online survey you will need personalised form access code.

You will receive your access code through the mail or from your Interviewer. 

Complete your survey!

The online survey will take around 20 - 25 minutes to complete. 


For this wave, only you will be interviewed in your home and you can make a time that suits you. Your parents will be interviewed by phone later. 

As you've now entered adulthood we've added in some new questions to capture this important stage in your life, including:

Are you 14-15 year old?

For your interview, we've added some games to assess your memory and reaction time.

New questions have also been added to capture your journey through adolescence. The new topics include:


Our 14 – 15 year olds and their parents will be asked to sign some consent forms when their interviewer visits. To have a look at these forms or more information on what we’ll be asking you to sign have a look at our privacy and consent page.
