CARE Survey Reports
The COVID-19 Attitudes, Resilience, and Epidemiology (CARE) study was established to gain real-time understanding of how people in Australia were thinking, feeling, and behaving in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated response measures. These surveys provided insights into the challenges faced by individuals and communities due to the pandemic and aimed to guide decision-making in relation to the management of disease transmission and promotion of community resilience. The Victorian component of CARE is conducted as part of the broader Optimise study.
