Would you like to help trial Statistics New Zealand’s Disability Survey?
What’s it all about?
Every five years, Statistics NZ surveys people with disabilities to get a better picture of the well-being of all New Zealanders. This survey collects important information that Government and community organisations use to make decisions that affect everyone living with a disability, including their families and carers.
Statistics NZ wants to test the survey to make sure the questions are easy for everyone to understand and answer. We will do this testing between February and April 2010.
