ANZ survey of adult financial literacy in Australia /

by The Social Research Centre.

Publisher: [North Melbourne, Vic.] The Social Research Centre 2008Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: October 2008Summary: This report presents findings from the third (2008) ANZ Survey of Adult Financial Literacy in Australia. The first survey, conducted in 2002, established a benchmark of the community's financial literacy while the surveys conducted in 2005, and now in 2008, have been used to monitor the benchmark measures. The three surveys provide a comprehensive set of data including both direct measures of financial literacy and attitudinal and behavioural information useful in explaining and understanding this concept. The three sets of data are the basis of this report. In considering the results presented here, it should be kept in mind that the 2008 survey took place against a background of financial market volatility, some high profile business failures (including those of several property developers in 2006/07), rising interest rates and increasing prices for oil and food. As a result, the economic situation in 2008 is somewhat less favourable than for the earlier surveys. (From executive summary)Availability: (1)
