This technical report was written for the State Services Commission by Nielsen, the company that ran the survey from 2012 to 30 June 2016. Changes to the survey are underway and the technical report will be updated to reflect these soon.
Kiwis Count is a continuous survey which allows the approach to the survey to be improved from month to month. This document was written after two quarters of surveying, so the examples are based on the first few months of interviewing. It will be updated over the life of the survey to keep track of changes to the methodology.
Survey findings are published in separate reports on a quarterly basis.
