Abstract: This report is the second of two volumes detailing the methodology and results of a major survey of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander temporary mobility in Central Australia, undertaken under the auspices of the Cooperative Research Centre for Remote Economic Participation (CRC-REP). It should be read in conjunction with Volume I, which provides a more detailed background to the Population Mobility and Labour Markets Project and the motivation for the survey, the survey methodology and sampling frame. The overall ‘Mobility Survey’ consisted of two main components: (1) a baseline survey collecting respondents’ demographic and other baseline data, data on where they go to access services, and their most common destination involving overnight stays outside of their community; and (2) a series of follow-up surveys collecting information on respondents’ two most recent trips, barriers to mobility and visitors they had staying with them from outside of the community. This Volume 2 report provides a detailed overview of the methodology and survey results of the follow-up surveys conducted after the baseline survey. The field work was undertaken over almost two years from early October of 2014 to late September of 2016 and resulted in 924 individuals completing at least one follow-up survey, making it, to the best of our knowledge, the largest survey ever undertaken focusing specifically on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mobility. Volume 1 provides a background to the project and an overview of the methodology, implementation and results from the baseline survey. The objective of this second volume is as a reference guide to the follow-up surveys. It sets out the sampling frame and methodology, provides a descriptive analysis of the main data items collected in the follow-up surveys, and canvasses problems encountered in collecting the data and associated limitations for their analysis.
