Consultation for the 2023 Disability Survey


The Disability Survey is the main source of information for estimating how many disabled people are in New Zealand. It provides information on the experiences of disabled people, and how well they are faring across a range of housing, economic, and wellbeing outcomes. It is also a key source of information that government and other organisations use to understand the needs of disabled people and plan services for them.

The 2023 Disability Survey will be the first national disability survey to be carried out since 2013, and Stats NZ is inviting feedback on the content of the survey to ensure it continues to meet data needs. This is also an opportunity to hear from disabled people and better reflect their views in the survey.

If you are a disability service provider, you are invited to a drop in session to hear more about this consultation process and how to take part.   

What to expect

The drop in sessions will be one hour long. They will be held during the day using Zoom and you do not need to register.

The information we share will be repeated at each session, so you only need to attend the time and day that suits you best.  

If you need NZSL interpretation, please come along on either the 10 September or 13 September.  If these times do not suit you, just let us know and we can arrange another session.

Zoom sessions will be held on the following days and times.

  • Wednesday 8 September 3.00 – 4.00pm
  • Friday 10 September 3.00 – 4.00pm (NZSL Interpreter)
  • Monday 13 September 11.00am – 12.00pm (NZSL Interpreter)
  • Wednesday 15 September 11.00 – 12.00pm
