This poll data is the 34th in an ongoing series of polls being undertaken by the Social Research Centre for the ANU. Their purpose is to assess Australians’ opinions on important and topical issues, with an emphasis on international comparisons. This research is used to inform public debate and policy about issues affecting Australia. This wave of the project was collected in May 2020. Its aim is to provide a timely update on Australia’s experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. It builds upon previous waves collected in January and April which have been tracking public opinion over the 2019/20 Summer Bushfires and COVID-19 crisis. The poll includes questions regarding substance use, mental health and social impacts, financial impacts, and support service use. Finally, we ask Australians about gambling and data privacy issues.
