Primary Surveys

We have conducted a number of national, local and work-place surveys; longitudinal, repeated or one-off; collecting quantitative and/or qualitative data.

World Internet Project (NZ)
The World Internet Project (WIP) is a major, international, collaborative project looking at the social, political and economic impact of the Internet and other new technologies.

It is a national sample administered in multiple formats: telephone, paper and online. The repeated nature of this survey enables domestic trends to be identified and international comparisons made.

The New Zealand Aged Care Workforce Survey
The demand for an aged care workforce in New Zealand is predicted to increase significantly in the near and long term future. At the same time, pay and conditions for employees in the sector have come under scrutiny. While population demographics have been used to predict the supply and demand for aged care employees, there is little data about the current workforce in New Zealand. Furthermore, there are few, if any, opportunities for national benchmarking of workforce trends such as turnover, labour supply, training and wellbeing factors.
