Is there any payment or reward for doing the survey?
Everyone who is eligible for the survey and completes it can enter a prize draw to win one of two $100 gift cards. The prizes will be drawn in January 2023. We will check people are eligible before awarding the prizes.
To enter the price draw, you will need to tell us your email address and postcode at the end of the survey. These details will be separated from the survey answers, only used for the prize draw, and deleted after prizes are awarded.
How will my information be used?
Are there any sensitive topics in the survey?
Yes. The survey covers topics including sexual and reproductive health, experiences of violence, pregnancy loss and infertility.
We suggest you do the survey in a private space and at a time when you will feel comfortable and safe. Thinking about these topics might bring up difficult feelings for you.
