ABS staff travelled to over two hundred locations across remote locations, regional centres and capital cities in order to provide form pick-up locations, where eligible Australians could collect or return forms, or receive assistance on the survey.

These staff were all experienced in remote work, most having undertaken similar field work through the Census of Population and Housing or elections.

All people enrolled on the Commonwealth Electoral Roll (or those who had made a valid request for enrolment) by 24 August 2017, and being 18 years of age, and not serving a prison sentence of three years or longer were eligible to participate in the AMLPS.

Separate to ABS pick-up locations, the ABS partnered with the Department of Human Services (DHS) to provide additional opportunities for people in remote locations to contact the ABS at one of their 600 access points across Australia.

In cases where there was no street address or household mail delivery, mail was held for collection at their local mail agent (like all other mail).
