Relationships indicators survey - 2008

9 Jan 2009

Produced biennially by Relationships Australia, the Relationships Indicators Survey provides information regarding the main issues and concerns that Australians have in their relationships today. The 2008 Survey highlights that the vast majority of people have relationships of some kind, with friendships of high importance. Findings include: the proportion of Australians living with a spouse or live-in/de facto partner increased by 5% from 2006; of other important relationships, over 80% had a close/best friend or sibling; four in ten respondents currently not in a relationship were looking for some kind of relationship; when asked to select from a list of factors that could negatively impact on partner relationships, 68% of respondents said 'stress' and at least half said they had experienced work pressures and a lack of time to spend with their partner.
