This guide describes the content of the New Zealand Health Survey (NZHS) for the period 1 July 2019 to 20 March 2020. Data collection for the NZHS usually occurs over 12 months; however, it was suspended earlier for the 2019/20 NZHS due to COVID-19 restrictions. 

This guide also briefly outlines the history of the survey and its development into a continuous survey, describes the process for developing the adult and child questionnaires for 2019/20, and provides an overview of each section of the survey. 

The module topics for adults and children in 2019/20 were:
