Born Overseas is a national survey that explores the lives of migrants who were not born in Australia, but have decided to live in Australia.
The survey seeks to better understand the experiences of migrants, including their happiness, life satisfaction, and resilience as well as understanding the barriers and obstacles which prevent happiness and cause challenges.
It explores some of the factors most impacted by the migration process, including social support and social capital.
Further, understanding how cultural background influences our adaptation to the new country is explored.
