    ABS Surveys

    We just had a lady knock on our door from the ABS on a Saturday morning asking us to participate in a health survey. She also mentioned about taking our blood pressure and measurements. We also had a guy from the ABS a few weeks ago wake us up on a Sunday morning about a survey (guessing it was the same survey). On both occasions we told them it wasn't a convenient time (on the Sunday morning he had woken us up and today we were in the middle of chores and I was writing a university assignment) and today the lady couldn't really give us any information about if we had to comply etc. Has anybody else had this happen? I just did a google search and it came up with all kinds of complaints. Do you know if we have to do the survey as we're not citizens? I guess if we have to we will do it I'm just slightly uneasy about providing this information especially my blood pressure and also in our spare time which we don't seem to get a lot of at the moment!

No it is not not....according to comments with this article online
