COVID-19 Work and Health Study

Posted on 08.09.2021 - 23:44 by Caryn Van Vreden

The world of work has changed dramatically during the COVID-19 pandemic. Hundreds of thousands of Australians have lost their jobs. Millions more are working less or working differently.

​The COVID-19 Work and Health study explores the physical and mental health impacts of these changes in work, and tracks people's engagement in work and their health over time.

Our approach:

We recruited more than 2000 Australians aged over 18 years who had been working before the pandemic. Some of these people had been impacted by COVID-19 related job loss or reduction, others continued to work as normal.

Participants completed a telephone or online survey at four timepoints: baseline, 1-month, 3-months, 6-months and 12-months down the track. This allowed us to track changes in work and health over time.
