Other demographics such as education, age and gender are also collected.
The 2001, 2006 and 2008 surveys included attitudinal questions that gauge a respondents' tolerance (or discomfort) with specific cultural groups, as well as their opinions on the desirability of cultural diversity and on the extent of racism. Beliefs in racial separatism (differentiation), racial hierarchy (inferiorisation) and racial categories (racialisation) were also gauged, along with piloted questions on respondents' experiences of racism within a limited range of activity spheres.
The 2006 survey collected data on the incidence of respondents' experiences with racism including racist talk (i.e. verbal abuse), exclusion, unfair treatment (i.e. denied service or employment) and physical attacks. Other data items relate to the location of occurrence, respondents' reactions to incidents of racism, and their feelings towards the experience and outcomes.
The data sets are arranged by Statistical Districts for non-metropolitan areas, and by Sub-Statistical Districts within the capital cities.
