Explanatory Comments

The cultural diversity target previously used the household survey, which has been discontinued. In 2008 (the baseline year), 87.7% of South Australians surveyed accepted cultural diversity as a positive influence in the community. This declined slightly to 85.9% in 2012. The ABS General Social Survey is now used instead. 

In 2010 83.2% of South Australian respondents stated they strongly agree or agree with the statement that ‘It is a good thing for a society to be made up of people from different cultures’. Of all respondents surveyed nationally, 80% indicated that they agree or strongly agree with the statement.

In 2014, 82.0% of South Australian respondents stating that they strongly agree or agree with the statement that ‘It is a good thing for a society to be made up of people from different cultures’
