This dataset is the 33rd 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 experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes questions regarding hygiene and social distancing measures, mental health and social impacts, and economic impacts of the pandemic. Finally, we ask Australians about their personal experiences of ethnicity-based discrimination.
