COVID-19 Justice Sector Survey

The COVID-19 Justice Sector Survey is a phone survey (CATI - Computer Assisted Telephone Interviews) with weekly reporting. The survey interviews people who have taken part in the New Zealand Crime and Victims Survey (NZCVS) and have said they are happy to participate in future research.

The survey asks, among other things, about social connection, people's perceptions of safety, experience of crime and reporting to Police, how easy the COVID-19 rules are to understand and perceptions of the criminal justice system.

Approximately 370 people are contacted each week resulting in approximately 300 finalised interviews (a response rate during the first nine days of interviewing was 82%). The survey follows the NZCVS strict approach to privacy and confidentiality and no contact details of interviewed adults are released.
