National identity

Date of publication: July 1, 2000


Through a case study approach, the paper shows how analysis of publicly available quantitative data can be combined with original qualitative research to yield insight into marketing issues. Using Australia as a case study, the aim of the paper is to investigate the contribution of various factors to the sense of national identity held by the inhabitants of a country. This paper shows the role played by ethnicity and related items, whether a clear national identity can in fact exist in such circumstances, and the implications of the findings for marketers in Australia.
