MCSCA Research: Migration Snapshot of the Centre

We invite you to participate in a survey to answer some questions about your experiences and understanding of migration as a migrant in Alice Springs. The main aim is to collect up-to-date, reliable demographic information about migrants and to understand the experience, aspirations and challenges faced by migrants in Central Australia, especially in the Alice Springs region, and inform the government‘s decision making in providing better services for migrants in this region. We encourage all migrants to participate in the survey.

Your response will remain private/confidential. The information will be used to create a research report about migrants in Central Australia which will help in decision making on housing, health, employment, education and other community issues.

This research project is managed by MCSCA and is funded by the NT Government. The researcher is Dr. Benxiang Zeng, an independent consultant, with approval from the Central Australian Human Research Ethics Committee. (Reference No. CA-20-3817). The project finishes in April 2021.

The data collection will be conducted from August 2020 based on the survey and focus group discussions. Click here to start the survey
