This dataset the thirty-first ANU Poll undertaken by the Social Research Centre for the ANU. The purpose of the ANU Poll is to assess Australians’ opinions on important and topical issues. These polls are typically conducted three times a year, or about every four months. 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. This research is used to inform public debate and policy about issues affecting Australia. In this particular wave of the project, we investigate Australia’s levels of optimism about the past and future. We also assess the community opinion on issues such as environment policy, globalisation and nudge interventions. Finally, we ask Australians about their personal experiences and satisfaction with government performance during the most recent bushfire season.

User Notice: The data file for this ANUPoll wave will be released soon.
