Australia's Contemporary National Identity: PIP Survey
Hi there, thank you for undertaking the time to complete this survey. My name is Ella Perizzolo and I am a Year 12 student who is undertaking the course Society and Culture. One of the requirements of the course is to conduct a Personal Interest Project in which I will be assessing Australia's National Identity. More specifically how and why being such a diverse and multicultural country shapes the nature of our 'distinct' national identity.

National Identity is the sense of a nation as cohesive whole, with distinctive traditions, culture and language. Though from this, the question I will be asking is whether Australia has a distinct national identity and what this looks like today.

All answers will be completely anonymous and confidential, with only myself and my teacher using these results for the sole purpose of providing evidence for my major work. Your honesty is appreciated to ensure the validity of my results though rest assured you are able to opt out of this questionnaire with no consequences at any point of time.

Thank You,
Ella Perizzolo
