Highlights

  • Accelerating Dataset Assembly in for analysis

    We developed this tool to standardise and automate dataset assembly in the Integrated Data Infrastructure.

  • It's about people

    A social wellbeing approach is about ‘real people’ – tamariki, rangatahi, whānau and communities – contributing to and benefitting from the work we do every day as researchers, data scientists, policy advisors or policy makers.

  • Engagement findings

    We asked you to tell us what you think about the Government’s investing for social wellbeing approach (which is about how government works with communities to support people to live the lives they aspire to), and the protection and use of information by the social sector.

Resources

  • Data protection and use

    Respectful, trusted, transparent. We've looked into what ‘doing the right thing’ looks like when collecting or using people’s data and information. This helps people understand how their information might be used, what rights and choices they have, and how to use those rights.

  • Data Exchange

    The Data Exchange provides a safe, secure and easy method for government and service providers to transfer data, alongside clear guidelines about how data is used.

  • Social science research

    The Hub is a one-stop-shop for New Zealand government social science research
