Current polls & surveys
Unlock the Past has conducted polls since October 2009 and from time to time runs general surveys. You can view all past polls and results here.
What countries/regions do your ancestors come from?
Two similar questions arose recently – "how many Australians have at least some German ancestry?" and "how many Australians have at least some Irish ancestry?".
The question is also of interest for two other reasons:
- the Australian census (next one 9 August 2016) has a question on ancestry. However this is a very limited "self-assessed measure of ethnic origin", limited to only 2 ancestries.
- the emergence of genealogy DNA testing now offers ethnicity reports
