This poll data is the 35th 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 August 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, April and May which have been tracking public opinion over the 2019/20 Summer Bushfires and COVID-19 crisis. The poll includes questions regarding experiences of COVID-19, opinions on a COVID-19 vaccine, COVID-19 response policies, financial impacts, support service use and mental health.
