Series 4 - Age Poll reprint publications


Date Range1971 - 1991, with gaps
ProvenanceIrving Saulwick
Description

Booklets printed by David Syme and Co. (publisher of The Age newspaper), primarily intended as an educational resource. Commencing with the first Age Polls in 1971, these publications were produced as retrospective compilations of the newspaper articles and associated graphical representations reporting the findings of political and social opinion polling conducted by Irving Saulwick on behalf of The Age newspaper.

Articles were originally published in the newspaper under the 'ASRB-Age Poll' banner and, from mid-1975, the 'Saulwick Age Poll' and 'Saulwick Poll' banners. Two later omnibus-style publications (1989 and 1990-1991) also feature reports published by The Age's sister newspaper, The Sydney Morning Herald, under the 'Herald Survey' banner.

For polls conducted between March 1971 and October 1981, booklets were issued consistently (although at irregular intervals). Thirty three such booklets were issued, under the title "Reprints of the [x] Series of Articles From Age Poll". The date range covered by individual booklets and the number of opinion polls represented therein varied over time, as did the frequency with which Age Polls were conducted (monthly, quarterly, snap polling).

No publications were issued for reprints of articles associated with polls conducted between November 1981 and August 1982. The Age Poll was then discontinued by the newspaper for almost two years; resuming in July 1984, with findings published in the newspaper the following month and a reprints booklet titled 'The Age - Age Poll - Collection 32' released in December the same year. Regular collations of the Age Poll articles were not produced after this date, although two omnibus editions appeared several years later: one containing reprints of articles published in 1989; the other containing reprints of articles published in 1991-1992.

The publishers of the Age and the Sydney Morning Herald newspapers also produced a number of historical and topical reprint collections that gathered together articles inclusive of (but not neccessarily limited to) reports based on Saulwick poll findings. A small number of such reprint publications are also held as part of this series.
