People experiencing homelessness

Completing your survey form

The Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey has now closed. Thank you to everyone who participated.

There was a range of support available for people experiencing homelessness to participate in the survey.

Online or telephone response

In limited circumstances, if you had a Secure Access Code from the ABS you could complete the survey online, via the automated telephone service, or by contacting the ABS Customer Assistance Team to provide an anonymous survey response by 6pm (local time) on 7 November 2017.

How to find your nearest Post Office or Red Post Box

To help you locate your nearest Post Office or Red Post Box, you could enter your suburb, city or postcode into Australia Post's Locator.

Nominate a trusted person to respond on your behalf

If you weren't able to complete your survey form, you could authorise a trusted person to assist you with your survey, or to complete the survey on your behalf.

How your materials were distributed

If you’re experiencing homelessness, you could:

  • Collect a survey form from one of our pick-up locations in every capital city, and some regional and remote locations by 20 October 2017.
  • Request the survey form be posted to the address of a trusted person to hold the form for you to collect.
  • Contact the ABS through the Information Line or via the ABS website by 20 October 2017 to request a Secure Access Code to complete the survey online, using the automated telephone service or via a ABS Customer Assistance Team.
