AbstractThis study was conducted as part of the Resource and Assessment Commission Forest and Timber Inquiry. It was designed to assess public opinion towards the environment, forests, and forest management in Australia. Variables covered include concern about various social issues, environmental problems in the respondent's locality, concern about national and global environmental problems, preferred goals for Australia, political affiliation, value placed on environmental protection, the respondent's conceptualisation of environmental damage, support for various lobby groups, attitudes to logging and various forestry issues, and whether the respondent has visited a native forest in the preceding twelve months. Background variables covered were sex, year of birth, marital status, age at leaving school, years of tertiary education, highest qualification since leaving school, employment status, occupation, type of employer, and membership of a trade union or staff association.

Methodology Content
Sampling Procedurestratified random sample The survey was conducted with two samples: a National Sample, and an additional sample from two electorates in south-east Australia - Eden-Monaro and Gippsland. Each sample was a systematic random sample of persons on the Federal Electoral Role. The selection of the National sample was made on the basis of a sampling fraction distributed proportionately across all states and territories, with the exception of South Australia, where the sample was selected manually from the alphabetic microfiche of electors. The target was for a sample of approximately one in every 3084 persons. Broken down by State and Territory, the target number of respondents was: NSW-1185, Vic-910, Qld-588, WA-320, SA-314, Tas-101, ACT-56, NT-26. For the South-east survey, the sample aimed to include 1 in 148 persons in Gippsland, and 1 in 151 persons in Eden-Monaro. Number of units in original sample: National sample - 3500; South-east sample - 1000
