Nationwide & Large Scale Surveys

Conduct of Nationwide and large scale surveys are a particular forte of NRB. In addition to a number of telephone survey techniques, NRB is able to provide the more statistically rigorous face-to-face, door to door sample survey method. In fact, NRB is one of only a few research companies in New Zealand with full capability for face-to-face nationwide surveys.

To achieve this, NRB maintains an extensive nationwide fieldforce who are trained, briefed and monitored by 27 local supervisors. This enables the larger or more complex surveys to be carried out cost-effectively and quickly, whether conducted via CAPI or paper based methods (PAPI).

Some features of these types of surveys are:

  • Known probability sample design enabling reliable estimates to be made of population behaviour.
  • Coverage of any geographical area or groups of areas down to meshblock level.
  • Face-to-face interviewing of respondents in their homes.
  • Full quality assurance including minimum 10% auditing of interviewers work.


Please contact Andy Heinemann or Larry Hill for further details of NRB's capability and extensive previous experience.
