Finder's Consumer Sentiment Tracker is a live, nationally representative study of the Australian public. Designed by Finder and conducted by Qualtrics (a SAP company), it aims to track consumer sentiment in Australia on an ongoing basis. The survey so far covers a sample of over 13,000 Australians and is growing by 1,000 every month. Topic covered include wealth, happiness, financial sentiment and environmental awareness. What follows is a small selection of the information being compiled by Finder.
The data presented here is a brief summary of some interesting findings, but only represents a small portion of the full survey. If you're a journalist or researcher, feel free to get in touch via the details at the bottom of this page for more information.
The wealth section examines the personal and household income, savings, job security, financial stress, property ownership and private/public school attendance of the average Australian family.
One of the simplest questions in our survey — "Would you say you are happy right now?" — produced some of the most interesting insights. In this section, we break down happiness by generation, age, state, employment status, relationship status, residence and income, among others.
