Friday, September 12th, 2014 - Roy Morgan Research

Living on a spinning world, sometimes it’s nice when things just stay the same. In the year to June 2014, 41.7% of Australians 14+ agreed that “I like things to stay the same”, the latest data from Roy Morgan Research shows.  

This proportion is virtually unchanged, at all, over the last five years. It is 0.2% points higher than it was in the year to June 2013, 0.5% points lower than in June 2012, the same as in June 2011, and 0.5% higher than in June 2010.

And the weighted average over the past five years is....? Also a soothing 41.7%.

Norman Morris, Industry Communications Director, Roy Morgan Research, says:

“Over the past five years alone, Roy Morgan Research’s Single Source survey has collected the personal attitudes of almost 100,000 Australians aged 14+ about everything from governmental policy to shopping preferences, eating habits, finance, travel, health, technology, and advertising. 

“Many of these attitudes have changed dramatically over time, either nationally or within certain demographic segments, so it can be quite reassuring—and just as insightful—to witness a stable trend."
