Government Satisfaction Index (GSI): March 2017

Despite lukewarm response to the Budget, overall satisfaction with the Government improved by another 2 points to 81 in March. Jobs and unemployment, housing affordability and rich/poor gap all improved 5 points while public transport rose by 4 points. Over the past 12 months general satisfaction is up by 10 points with three areas making major gains: (1) housing affordability (+23), (2) public transport (+20) and (3) population management (+19). All three have been battle grounds for the Government in recent years and YKA results indicate that government policies and actions have been successful in recapturing the public’s approval.
