The Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) Survey is a nationally representative longitudinal study of Australian households which commenced in 2001. Funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services (DSS), the HILDA Survey is managed by the Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research at the University of Melbourne. The HILDA Survey provides longitudinal data on the lives of Australian residents. Its primary objective is to support research questions falling within three broad and inter-related areas of income, labour market and family dynamics. The HILDA Survey is a household-based panel study of Australian households and, as such, it interviews all household members (15 years and over) of the selected households and then re-interviews the same people in subsequent years. This dataset is the 20th release of the HILDA data, incorporating data collected from 2001 through 2020 (Waves 1-20). The special topic module in Wave 21 is health, and includes questions on health care utilisation, physical and mental health, diet, lifestyle, quantity and quality of sleep, and children’s health.
