The Australian Survey of Social Attitudes (AuSSA) is Australia’s main source of data for the scientific study of the social attitudes, beliefs and opinions of Australians, how they change over time, and how they compare with other societies.

The aims of the survey are to discover

the range of Australians’ views on topics that are important to all of us

how these views differ for people in different circumstances

how they have changed over the past quarter century

how they compare with people in other countries.

AuSSA is also the Australian component of the International Social Survey Project (ISSP). The ISSP is a cross-national collaboration on surveys covering important topics. Each year, survey researchers in some 40 countries each do a national survey using the same questions.
