The first survey (2008) was completed by over 450 people, of which around 350 people stated they were happy for us to invite them to be part of future studies.This was a fantastic response. However, some groups are currently under-represented in the study and we would like to boost numbers in these areas if possible.
Not surprisingly, the majority of responses to the 2008 survey were from lesbians who live in inner-city areas. Victoria, QLD and NSW were also well represented. People we would like to hear more from are:
- gay dads of all descriptions
- men and women who live in rural and regional areas
- men and women who live in the Northern Territory, Western Australia, South Australia or the ACT
- gay dads from Tasmania
- gay dads from New Zealand
That being said, we welcome more responses from anyone. So inner-city lesbian parents are still more than welcome to fill in the survey.
The only thing we ask is that just one parent per family fills in the survey. So if you or your partner have already done it, please don’t do it again!
