This study aimed to assess understanding and perceptions of the current classifiable elements (themes, violence, sex, nudity, coarse language and drug use) and impact descriptors, as well as preferences regarding the use of these terms in consumer advice. The study was conducted in August 2014 and included six focus groups in regional Western Australia and Adelaide and a survey of 1,000 adults.
