Research

We place emphasis on a multidisciplinary and collaborative approach to research. Our Big Data research employs empirical evidence from large administrative datasets, and our Primary Surveys report on cross-sectional and longitudinal surveys conducted at national, local and workplace levels. Visit our Document Library to see recent examples of our research outputs.

Big data

Many projects have a strong focus on utilising linked administrative data, in particular the Integrated Data Infrastructure (IDI) and Longitudinal Business Database (LBD).

Integrated Data Infrastructure and Longitudinal Business Database

Primary surveys

We have conducted a number of national, local and workplace surveys; longitudinal, repeated or one-off; collecting quantitative and/or qualitative data. Two examples include the World Internet Project and the NZ Women's Empowerment Principles Survey.

See the Primary Surveys webpage for more details.

Mixed methods

Mixed methods research brings together empirical evidence from large administrative data sets and quantitative and/or qualitative survey data.

See the Mixed Methods webpage for more details.
