Survey of Rural Decision Makers

In July this year, people from across the country will be asked to participate in the 2019 Survey of Rural Decision Makers. We want to hear from all farmers, growers, orchardists, viticulturalists and foresters - whether lifestyler, station manager, or something in between.

The Survey is on-line and an invitation to participate will arrive by e-mail in mid-July.

Questions focus on actions on your land, how you make decisions and how things change as a result.

All information provided is confidential.

Once all the responses are in, we will provide summary information on our website so you can see the survey results and benchmark your own responses.Results from previous surveys in 2017, 2015 and 2013 are available to view via the links below.

The Survey of Rural Decision Makers is used to help policy makers and researchers better understand people in the primary industries and the challenges they face.
