A special Roy Morgan study has examined Australians’ attitudes towards issues facing Australia and the World. The survey, which was carried out from 22-24 May 2017, shows that 38% of Australians identified Economic Issues (including Unemployment, Housing affordability, the Economy in general, Poverty and the gap between the rich and poor) as the most important problems facing Australia. When considering the wider World, the largest theme to emerge was about concerns related to War & Terrorism. These issues, including the more general fears about safety and security, were mentioned by 31% of Australians. Single-issue analysis of the responses shows that the specific issue of greatest concern for Australia is unemployment (mentioned by almost 9% of respondents). The single biggest World problems are Terrorism and Climate change/Global warming, with both issues mentioned by just under 17% of respondents.
