National Listener Survey

Print

The National Listener Survey is a survey of the community radio listening habits of Australians.

It is a hybrid telephone and online survey of a representative sample of 15,000 Australians over the age of 15, across all Australian states and territories and is conducted on behalf of the CBAA by McNair yellowSquares, an accredited Australian market and social research organisation with a long history of media research dating back to the first radio audience surveys held in the 1930s. 

The surveys provide invaluable feedback to community stations and stakeholders about trends, listeners and the sector itself.

The NLS is a survey of the community radio listening habits of Australians and the updated fact sheets for December 2019 are now available!
