COVID-19 Health and Wellbeing Survey - information for participants

As part of the government’s response to COVID-19, the Ministry of Health would like to find out how people are getting on at this time with a short 10 minute survey.

You may have come to this website because you have been invited to take part in the COVID-19 Health and Wellbeing Survey and want to find out more about it.

The COVID-19 Health and Wellbeing Survey collects information about how New Zealanders are getting on, and how they are being impacted by COVID-19. The Ministry of Health will use results from the survey to understand what support and information New Zealanders need around COVID-19.

About the interview

We are inviting some of the people who previously took part in the New Zealand Health Survey, and at the time agreed that we could contact them about other research in the future, to take part in this COVID-19 Health and Wellbeing Survey. These people will be called and invited to take part in a phone interview.

The phone interview takes about 15 minutes. The interview will be carried out by trained interviewers from a company called CBG Health Research Limited. CBG Health Research Limited is a New Zealand company experienced in carrying out surveys.

Your privacy

The information given to the interviewer is protected by the Privacy Act 1993 and won’t be discussed with anyone. No one else will know who has taken part in the survey. The answers given are added to other people’s answers to create grouped results, so an individual's information cannot be traced. Your information will always remain confidential.
