2012 Australian Reconciliation Barometer


The first Australian Reconciliation Barometer was first conducted in 2008, shortly after the Apology to Australia’s Indigenous  Peoples and it captured the positive mood of the nation towards reconciliation. In 2010, there was a decline across a range of indicators however it is encouraging that this trend was reversed in 2012.
Overall the key findings from 2008 are still true today. Australians believe the relationship is important but they do not think it is very good. They would like to know more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories and cultures.
