Roy Morgan Electorate Report shows Marginal Electorate Link to Health

Source: Roy Morgan Research January 2008 – December 2009. Australian Electors n = 35,915.

Is the state of Australia's health system considered an important issue in your electorate?

An estimated 1.23 million electors say improving health and hospitals is an important issue and that the L-NP would be better for managing the issue.

While this represents around 8.9% of all electors nationwide, there is enormous variation — and is much higher in some important marginal ALP seats, like Robertson, NSW (14.7%); Braddon, Tas (14.0%); Dawson, QLD (13.0%); Hasluck, WA (12.6%); and Page, NSW (12.3%) and Bass, Tas (11.7%).
