About the survey

The Use and Trust in Official Statistics Survey monitors the awareness and use of, and trust in, official statistics by different user groups. Users of official statistics are defined as having used government statistics in the previous 12 months. 

The survey provides information on their:

  • awareness and knowledge of government statistics
  • use of government statistics
  • whether government statistics met the information needs of users
  • trust and confidence in Statistics NZ’s statistics.

The Use and Trust in Official Statistics Surveys contribute to the measurement of the end outcome of the Official Statistics System – “an informed society using official statistics”. The information provided by the survey is used to:

  • monitor progress towards achieving the OSS outcome
  • monitor and identify actions to improve the overall health of the Official Statistics System
  • inform Statistics NZ’s understanding of its customers
  • help Statistics NZ identify actions to improve its products and services.

We commission an external research agency to collect the data to preserve independence of results.
