ANU Polls

The ANU Polls is a series of polls conducted three times a year by The Australian National University. The purpose of the series is to assess Australians' opinions on important and topical issues, with an emphasis on international comparisons. Some questions appear in every poll in order to provide information about changes in opinion over time; the majority of questions appear in one poll only. 
 
The main focus of each poll varies, and has covered a variety of issues, such as Australia's future, food security or corruption. Background demographic and social variables are repeated ineach wave and generally include gender, age, household composition, country of birth, highest level of education, employment status, income, religion, voting preference and access to the internet.
