This nationwide household survey was conducted by telephone in November 2002. In total, 1,032 employees aged 15 or older were questioned about their attitudes to unions. The results were then weighted to reflect the characteristics of all employees aged 15 and above across Australia.
The main focus of this report is an analysis of any changes in employees’ attitudes between 1996 (when the survey began) and 2002. As in previous surveys, employees were asked to indicate whether they agreed with, disagreed with or were neutral about a series of statements concerning unions.
