Hello all,

Does anyone know of any (recent) survey data that asks Australians  
whether they trust scientists, esp in comparison to other professional  

Kind regards, Nancy

Hi Nancy, just wondering, do you have access via your communication network
to some survey or opinion poll data that show how much Australians trust
scientists? Maybe in comparison to other professional groups? I know of no
local data, though I do know that in the US scientists regularly come out on
top-ahead of clergy, etc, with lawyers and politicians at the bottom.

                Cheers Steve
