For Data Users
Accessing HILDA Survey data
Data from the HILDA Survey is available to researchers living in Australia or overseas. The data is cumulative and includes all data releases.
Researchers working in institutions such as universities should check whether their institution has already signed an organisational licence agreement. If so, these users should contact their institution’s Data Manager to sign a Deed of Confidentiality.
For more information about the licensing arrangements, application process or costs involved, please refer to Ordering HILDA Survey data.
