In 2021 we hosted the first virtual colloquia of the HILDA Survey to celebrate the 21st anniversary.

It has been 21 years since work on the design of the HILDA Survey commenced. To mark and celebrate this milestone, the Melbourne Institute held a series of weekly virtual colloquia over a six-week period to showcase new research based on the data the HILDA Survey has generated over the years.

Each session provided the opportunity for new and experienced international researchers to gather and discuss their recent findings using HILDA Survey data, and to communicate their research to a wider audience. We welcomed audiences from both government and non-government organisations who wanted to learn about the HILDA Survey data and the types of research and policy questions that are being examined.
