The survey of more than 950 people aged 17-24 asked respondents about their voting intentions, whether they vote the same way as their friends and family, and how interested they are in the federal election.
The Australia Institute conducted an online survey in August 2013. Respondents were sourced from a reputable independent online who earn reward points to participate. Results were post weighted (n = 966) by age and gender based on the profile of the adult Australian population. Small variations in sample size can occur from rounding errors as a result of the weighting process.
