Most Trusted Professions Survey
Monday, 6th May 2013 at 9:18 am

Nurses have been named Australia’s most trusted profession, with 90% of Aussies listing them as the most ethical and honest profession.

The results came from a Roy Morgan study into the ‘Image of Professions’ Survey for 2013. Of all 30 professions surveyed in 2013 a large majority, twenty-one, increased while only four professions declined and five professions were unchanged.

“Roy Morgan’s annual Image of Professions survey for 2013 shows a majority of professions (21) recorded rises in their ratings for ‘ethics and honesty’ over the past year with Nurses(90%, unchanged from 2012) still leading the way as Australia’s most respected profession for very high or high ‘ethics and honesty’,” Garry Morgan said.

“Other professions in the medical field once again scored well with high ratings for ‘ethics and honesty’ including Doctors (88%, up 5%) Pharmacists (84%, down 4%), and Dentists(74%, down 1%).

“Engineers (76%, up 6%) scored their highest ever rating alongside School teachers (76%, unchanged) while High Court Judges (73%, up 3%) were the only other profession to rate above 70%

Once again Car Salesman (4%, up 2%) rank at the bottom of the list — a position they have held for over 30 years. The only other profession in single digits for ‘ethics and honesty’ is Advertising people (9%, up 1%) just behind Real Estate Agents (12%, up 3%).
