The authors are grateful to the staff of the Social Research Centre who worked closely with the Australian Institute of Criminology in developing this survey and who were responsible for advising on the sampling frame, constructing and administering the questionnaire, collecting and preparing the data file, and preparing the companion Methodology Report (Challice & Eliseo 2012). We appreciate the work of colleagues at the Australian Institute of Criminology, particularly Dr Samantha Bricknell and Dr Evan Smith, for their contributions to this final publication. Staff at the Australian Government Attorney-General’s Department and the Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre provided comments on earlier drafts. We are also grateful to the many individuals who agreed to participate in the survey and who agreed to be interviewed. The views expressed in this report are those of the authors alone and do not necessarily reflect the opinions or policies of the Australian Government or its agencies.
