About CommBank Consumer Insights
CommBank Consumer Insights is an exclusive, wide-ranging analysis of the Australian consumer. This edition focuses on understanding consumer attitudes, motivations and expectations of their experiences amid changes to the real and digital economy.
This edition is based on an online quantitative survey conducted by Fifth Quadrant on behalf of the Commonwealth Bank. The survey was conducted in May and June 2023 and was completed by 5,279 consumers of goods and services.
Each respondent answered questions relating to one category where they had spent money in recent months, including:
Groceries and liquor (n=406), clothing & footwear (n=406), homewares and household appliances (n=408), consumer electronics and entertainment including books, games, music and media (n=404), recreational sporting and outdoor goods (n=407), motor vehicle parts and accessories (n=406), health and beauty products (n=406), hardware, DIY, building and garden supplies (n=407), personal care services including hairdressing, beauty and weight loss treatments (n=406), fast food and quick service restaurants (n=405), pubs and clubs (n=408), restaurants and cafes (n=407), and accommodation including hotels, motels and AirBnb (n=403).
The sample was selected to ensure the results are nationally representative. All statistics and references to consumers in this report are based on the responses to the survey unless otherwise stated.
