Join us at our next Bubble Hui on Saturday 12 August to hear about Statistics NZ’s upcoming disability survey.

Following on from this year’s census is the first national disability survey since 2013. The results from the survey will give important insight into disability in New Zealand including the experiences and needs of disabled people, and how well they are faring compared with non-disabled people.

Ronelle Baker, Kaitohutohu Mātāmua | Principal Advisor – Accessibility, and her team from Statistics New Zealand will join us to discuss what to expect from the upcoming survey.
