Hi Nancy,

Not quite what you are asking about but the "Who Cares about the Environment in 2009?" survey of NSW people's environmental knowledge, attitudes and behaviours includes a question relating to perceived reliability of information sources (relating to the environment).

The results are on pages 56-60 of the full report that can be found at  http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/community/Whocares2009.htm).

A question about sources of environmental information is on Page 77.

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
