"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 32nd survey, undertaken in August 2015. Our previous survey had been conducted about 11 months earlier in September 2014. The intervening period for this survey corresponds to the 2nd year of the Liberal/National Coalition Government, elected in September 2013, and the last month of Abbott's Prime Ministership. Surveys 1-30 involved a telephone interview with a new sample of 2,000 Australians, selected to represent the geographic distribution of the national population. For the 31st and 32nd surveys the same recruitment methods were followed, though the sample comprised 1,000 Australians. This sample still provides a large representative group and is sufficient for analytical purposes. The 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 the Survey 32 is housing affordability." --page 4.
