Read media release: CEDA national poll: Queenslanders rank regional development as more important; are less satisfied at work 

CEDA has released the Queensland results from Community pulse 2018: the economic disconnect - polling exploring Australians’ attitudes to work, education, health, community and the economy.

Strong government support for regional development is more important to Queenslanders compared to other states, while Queenslanders are less likely to feel like they have gained from economic growth and are less satisfied with work.

Overall Queensland respondents were more likely to feel like they have not gained, or don’t know if they have gained from Australia’s record run of economic growth compared to national results (59 per cent compared to 55 per cent nationally). 

The top personal issues in Queensland, in addition to regional development, aligned nationally with reliable, low cost basic health services; reliable, low cost essential services; access to stable and affordable housing; affordable, high quality chronic disease services; and reduced violence in homes and communities, rating as of high importance.

On the national issues of greatest importance, Queenslanders were in line with the national results placing greatest importance on high quality and accessible public hospitals; strong regulation to limit foreign ownership of Australian land/assets; increased pension payments; high quality and choice of aged care services; and high quality and accessible public schools.
