In the last two years, polled opinion on immigration has shifted; whereas earlier surveys indicated that most Australians thought the migrant intake too high. Surveys taken after the 1998 election and 1999 referendum point to a public which is more evenly divided. This paper sets out the evidence jar this shift and defends its validity: it points to possible reasons for the change; and it explores the relationship between policy-making and public opinion on immigration pursuing the implications for opponents of immigration who seek to base their case for lower population growth on opinion poll data. 15 page(s)
