The Survey of Covid-19 Behaviours (SCRUB) project aimed to provide current and future policymakers with actionable insights into public attitudes and behaviours relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was led by Ready Research in partnership with BehaviourWorks Australia, Monash Sustainable Development Institute, Monash University and Australian Catholic University; and a group of more than 100 international researchers.

In Australia, SCRUB received pilot funding from the Monash Sustainable Development Institute at Monash University. It was then funded by the Victorian Government for 15 months, resulting in a total of output of 21 waves of data collection and reporting. All project funding was received by three members of our research collaboration employed at BehaviourWorks Australia (which led the Australian chapter of the project).
