A Roy Morgan Single Source survey has found that the diet of 11.2 per cent of Australian adults (almost 2.1 million people) was all or almost all vegetarian in the year to March 2016. This compares with 9.7 per cent (1.7 million people) in the year to March 2012. The shift towards vegetarianism has been most striking in New South Wales; 12.4 per cent of people living in the state agree that "The food I eat is all, or almost all, vegetarian", up from 9.5 per cent in 2012. Tasmania has the highest proportion of residents who eat little or no meat (12.7 per cent, up from 12.2 per cent in 2012), while Queensland (9.2 per cent, up from 8.3 per cent) retains the distinction of being the state least inclined towards vegetarianism.
