The New Zealand Health Survey (NZHS) is an important data collection tool for monitoring the health of the population.
The information collected is an important source of supporting evidence for health and health service policy and strategy development.
From May 2011, the New Zealand Health Survey will be made up of a consistent core questionnaire with a flexible programme of rotating thematic / topic modules. The document describes the New Zealand Health Survey and outlines the key objectives of the survey.
The report also outlines the key information domains and topic areas that will be included in the survey.
