The technical reports were written for the State Services Commission by its research providers. Gravitas Research Ltd has run the survey since July 2016 and has written the latest Technical Report. The Nielsen Company ran the survey from 2012 to 30 June 2016 and wrote the earlier Technical Report.
Kiwis Count is a continuous survey which allows the approach to the survey to be improved from month to month. Both reports needs to be read to understand changes to the methodology over time. The latest Technical Report will continue to be updated to keep track of changes to the methodology.
Survey findings are published in separate reports (see the Kiwis Count home page).
