On 13 August, Statistics New Zealand started releasing information from the 2012 New Zealand General Social Survey (NZGSS). The release reports new information on what New Zealanders consider important in their lives and also provides valuable national and regional statistics about a wide range of outcomes for people.
Statistics NZ is strongly focused on ensuring New Zealand gets the information it needs to grow and prosper. To this end we are holding a series of tailored workshops across the country about the NZGSS.

What will we be talking about?

The NZGSS is an official national survey of well-being involving over 8,000 people aged 15 years and over, and is aligned with international measures. The 2012 survey is the third in the General Social Survey series, allowing us to now measure social change over time. The data includes information about population groups defined by age, sex, labour force status, education level, household income, housing tenure, family type, migrant status, ethnicity, and region. Data is available from 2008, 2010 and 2012.
Topics include:
• life satisfaction
• financial well-being and job satisfaction
• social contact and isolation, participation in voluntary work
• safety and security
• housing quality, emergency preparedness, and council services
• self-assessed health
• human rights, voting and discrimination
• support across households.

The workshop will involve a presentation about the NZGSS tailored to regional and sector group interests, followed by an interactive session focusing on how to access and use the NZGSS data and the information available via the Statistics NZ website.
