After six waves of the Index, we are seeing clear trends of a declining sense of national identity, wellbeing and belonging amongst Australians.
With the recent release of the sixth wave of the Inclusive Australia Social Inclusion Index, we are seeing clear trends of a declining sense of national identity, wellbeing, and belonging in Australia.
The Index, which has surveyed over 11,000 Australians since 2017, has identified several clear trends over the last 5 years:
BehaviourWorks Australia published Australia’s first index that measures all aspects social inclusion in the community back in 2017 to support the launch of Inclusive Australia – a powerful alliance of organisations wanting to see a more coordinated approach to inclusivity – and gain a more holistic understanding of inclusion and discrimination whilst being able to track progress over time.
To help you understand what we did, in this video, Dr Kun Zhao explains some key concepts and the methodological approach to gathering data and developing the Index.
We are keen to do more research in the area and are welcome to any opportunities to collaborate with others who are interested in improving social inclusion in Australia.
