Court Users

ALRC Survey of Court Users

Over a period of approximately four weeks in July and August 2021, the ALRC conducted a survey of members of the public who had attended any state, territory, or Commonwealth court for non-criminal proceedings in Australia in the past 10 years.

The survey was conducted online and administered by Qualtrics through market research panels. A total of 4,206 participants took part in the survey, with the majority being screened out following initial questions. The final dataset comprised responses from 490 participants.

For description and analysis of responses and a summary of methodology see Chapter 5 and Appendix F of the Final Report.
