Summary The Australian Unity Wellbeing Index monitors the subjective wellbeing of the Australian population. Our first survey was conducted in April 2001 and this report concerns the 15th survey, undertaken in May 2006. Our previous survey had been conducted seven months earlier in October 2005. This intervening period contained a number of significant events. The first Australian terrorist threat was marked by the arrest of people in Sydney and Melbourne alleged to be plotting an attack. In December rioting took place in Sydney between Muslim and non-Muslim youths, but whether this was due more to religious differences or a ‘turf-war’ is unclear. Then, in May 2005, the new Industrial Relations legislation came into force. Each survey involves a telephone interview with a new sample of 2,000 Australians, selected to represent the national population geographic distribution. These surveys comprise the Personal Wellbeing Index, which measures people’s satisfaction with their own lives, and the National Wellbeing Index, which measures how satisfied people are with life in Australia. Other items include a standard set of demographic questions and other survey-specific questions. The specific topic for Survey 15 is the extent to which people feel that their source of income is secure.
