Technical note

The Ipsos Issues Monitor is conducted monthly via online panel. Each month approximately 1000 Australian adults aged 18+ are asked to select the top three issues facing the nation, their state and their local area from a list of nineteen potential concerns. Data is weighted to match the profile of the population.

The precision of Ipsos online polls are calculated using a credibility interval with a poll of 1,000 accurate to +/- 3.5 percentage points and of 500 accurate to +/- 4.8 percentage points.
