Community Pulse

In 2018 CEDA established the Community pulse survey and commissioned a poll to understand Australian public perceptions of and attitudes to growth and economic development and what they think the important issues are for their future and for the future of the nation

The first Community Pulse survery results were released in Community pulse 2018: the economic disconnect. After 26 years of uninterrupted economic growth, this report examined how satisfied Australians were with their circumstances; who they thought had gained from this growth; and what the most important issues were for them personally and for Australia.

Company Pulse

Company Pulse assists in identifying new insights and trends about Australian business that are not well appreciated and inform the focus of CEDA’s future research particularly in the fast moving areas of technology, data and the workplace where economic policy is struggling to keep up. It will also provide an important foundation for discussions on the role of business in economic development at CEDA forums and events.

CEDA released the results of this survey on 16 September 2019. Overall, the results show the community expects a broad contribution from business including on social and environmental issues. While our survey highlights many issues that the community and business leaders are aligned on – perhaps more so than might be expected – it also identifies areas of disconnect
