Recent surveys such as the 2dF QSO redshift survey (2QZ) and the Sloan Digital Sky k Survey (SDSS) are assembling large homogeneous data sets which support a study of the Galactic population of white dwarf stars. Our main objectives are to map the distribution of white dwarfs in the Galaxy and measure its scale height, and, secondly to build luminosity functions for hydrogen-rich (DA) and helium-rich (non-DA) white dwarfs. The 2QZ Survey is a deep spectroscopic survey of blue Galactic and extragalactic sources which was conducted at the Anglo-Australian Telescope in Australia.
