Longitudinal Survey of Immigrants to Australia

The Longitudinal Survey of Immigrants to Australia is a longitudinal survey of three cohorts of migrants, they are, 1) migrants who arrived in Australia between September 1993 and August 1995 (LSIA 1); 2) migrants who arrived in Australian between September 1999 and August 2000 (LSIA 2); and those either arrived in Australia, or were granted a permanent visa in Australia between December 2004 and March 2005.  Data collection was undertaken from March 1994 to October 2006. The LSIA1 cohort participated in three waves of data collection, while LSIA 2 and 3 underwent two waves of data collection. Data was collected through in-depth interviewing, written questionnaire and computer-assisted telephone interviewing. When necessary, interviews were conducted in languages other than English with either a member of the participants’ family or accredited interpreters or bilingual interviewers. Topics covered in the LSIA surveys include pre and post migration experiences, participants’ family background, socioeconomic status indicators, and experiences and opinions of Australia.
