Presenting a set of analyses from the National Social Science Survey this book explores a range of questions about the attitudes, values and behaviour of the Australian public. The authors have aimed to produce a book which is of interest to scholars and general readers alike. The topics covered include attitudes towards moral issues such as abortion and foreign aid, views on economic policy and the political system in general, political ideology, access to higher education and attitudes associated with different educational backgrounds, discrimination against immigrants, female participation in the workforce and the content of work, happiness and satisfaction with life, and religious beliefs and the Church. The National Social Science Survey is considered to be the most comprehensive national sample survey of social and political attitudes ever undertaken in Australia, and in addition to updating some earlier work with fresh evidence for the 1980s, the book presents a number of completely new analyses of topics that have not until now been subject to systematic analysis of this sort. Jonathan Kelley is the director of the National Social Science Survey, which is conducted by the Research School of Social Sciences at ANU.
