The report draws on 4270 responses to Australia s major social survey, the Australian Survey of Social Attitudes, conducted by the Australian National University. Social scientists from a network of universities around the country offer insights into how Australians view work, family, immigration, crime, media power, genetic testing, economic reform, television violence and globalisation.
