Consumer Sentiment Tracker

Live insights on the wealth, happiness and economic outlook of everyday Australians.

Finder's Consumer Sentiment Tracker is a live, nationally representative study of the Australian public. Developed by Finder and conducted by Qualtrics, a SAP company, it continuously monitors consumer sentiment in Australia. The survey, which has so far polled over 64,000 Australians, expands monthly by 1,000 participants. Selection criteria include age, location, gender, and income, ensuring a demographic cross-section that mirrors Australia's population. Topics covered are wealth, happiness, financial sentiment, and environmental awareness.

This data represents a brief overview of notable insights but is just a fraction of the survey's comprehensive scope. Journalists and researchers interested in more detailed information can contact us using the details provided at the end of this page.
