For the past three years, the Department has commissioned the Social Research Centre to conduct the Media Content Consumption Survey (MCCS) to look at media content behaviours of Australians.
In 2022 the Department commissioned a complementary survey, the Television Consumer Survey (TVCS), to examine Australians’ usage and attitudes towards connected TV devices and content.
The 2022 surveys were run at the same time in one survey instrument (457 KB). A total of 5,017 people participated in the surveys, between 12 September and 2 October 2022. Questions specific to the MCCS were asked of 4002 respondents and questions specific to the TVCS were asked of 4016 respondents.
