Data aggregated from the Melbourne Institute "Taking the Pulse of the Nation" (TTPN) survey. Aggregated data are weighted using survey sample weights. The TTPN survey contains responses from 1200 persons, aged 18 years and over. The sample is stratified by gender, age and location to be representative of the Australian population. Percentages do not add up to 100 per cent as results for the 'don’t know/refuse’ category have been excluded.  Labels in the time axis (x-axis) for the line charts do not match TTPN survey dates. Labels are excluded to improve chart clarity.
