Survey of COVID-19 Responses to Understand Behaviour (SCRUB)

BehaviourWorks Australia is a leading behaviour change research enterprise within the Monash Sustainable Development Institute. It brings leading behaviour change researchers and practitioners together to find behavioural solutions to social, environmental and organisational problems, with a strong focus on improving health and wellbeing.

In 2020, BehaviourWorks set up the Survey of COVID-19 Responses to Understand Behaviour (SCRUB) to measure Australians’ behaviours and attitudes during the pandemic. Findings from each survey wave attracted national media attention, and were disseminated throughout the Victorian Government, to support evidence-informed policy responses.
