Initially we will publish information as to the number of people who have registered, by age and sex, and the proportion they represent of the population.
Once a large enough number of people have are providing their information, we will publish maps of the number and proportion of the population by suburb and locality, allowing comparisons across each state and Australia. In line with standard practice, information will only be published where there are sufficient people or cases in an age group or area to avoid the identification of individuals.

Data privacy

We are taking the following steps to protect your privacy:

The Unlocking Australia App only asks for a first name and email; no other identifying data are collected, and the analysis will be on this de-identified data.
The suburb or locality of the home address of respondents is collected so as to be able show variations in symptoms by geographical location.
The information provided through the app is stored at Torrens University, with access limited to PHIDU staff, who are trained in the importance of confidentiality and maintaining the privacy and security of information.
Data will not be released or published for a table cell (e.g., an age or sex group, a suburb) where there are fewer than five people/instances (e.g., numbers with a disease).
Data may be released to other, approved researchers.

The project was approved by the Torrens University Australia Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) in accordance with the National Health and Medical Research Council’s (NHMRC) National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research (2007).
