New Zealand General Social Survey tables

This page has links to a selection of New Zealand General Social Survey tables in NZ.Stat – our free web tool for creating, finding, customising, and downloading datasets.

Civic participation

The civic participation tables include data on types and levels of civic participation by different population groups in New Zealand. The two types of participation focused on are voting – during general and local area elections – and formal voluntary work done for an organisation or group. These variables are included alongside strength of belonging to New Zealand, and analysed by age group, ethnicity, and family type.

Gender

The gender table includes data on gender and physical and emotional vulnerability through variables of safety (walking at night in your neighbourhood) and levels of loneliness. These feelings will be able to be analysed alongside age group and family type.

Housing

The housing tables look at people’s satisfaction with their housing. The main areas focused on are: people’s satisfaction with their current housing; whether they reported having at least one major problem with their housing; and the tenure of the household. This information can be analysed against family type and age group, or by ethnicity and age group.

Migrants

The migrants table provides data on migrants living in different regions of New Zealand, whether they voted in the 2008 general election, whether and how strongly they feel they belong to NZ, and their levels of trust in social institutions. It compares this information with non-migrant groups.
