Spring is here, the days are warming up while lockdowns are still in place. Over the next few months we will continue polling New Zealanders on important issues, from housing and Covid-19 vaccination (our most recent polling) to crime & safety, health and more. Contact us at any time with suggestions for social research polls.

New Zealanders' vaccination intentions....
As other countries start to ease their Covid-19 restrictions, and Auckland faced a fifth week of Level 4 lockdown, we decided to ask New Zealanders their opinions on what New Zealand should be doing to manage Covid-19.
We asked two questions in order to:
- Gauge whether the public think New Zealand should continue aiming to eliminate Covid-19 through lockdowns, or whether we should ease restrictions.
- Measure the level of agreement that vaccination should be mandatory for certain frontline groups, overseas visitors, restaurant and bar patrons, and businesses that request it.

Our vaccination research was featured on major media outlets, including Radio New Zealand's Sunday Morning show panel, Newshub and the Guardian .
An insight into how New Zealanders rate their homes in terms of their warmth, dampness, general repair, size, amenities, and affordability.
We asked New Zealanders if they own or rent their home, and how they rate it in terms of a series of 'decent home' factors: affordability, dampness, warmth in winter, state of repair, amenities and living space.

What gets you out of bed in the morning?
My 5 alarms that I set every day.
Given a chance, who would you like to be for a day?
I don't know, I've never really thought about being anyone else but me!
What's your favourite quote from a film or a book or someone you admire?
Time and tide wait for no man. Geoffrey Chaucer. My Dad used to always say this to me, meaning for me take every opportunity I get, because I may not get that same chance again. That quote has always stuck with me.
What's your guilty pleasure, something you like but shouldn't?
Binge watching reality tv shows like €˜Keeping up with the Kardashian's' or €˜Teen Mom OG'. I'm a sucker for those types of shows - cringe.

What gets you out of bed in the morning?
My annoying alarm clock!

Given a chance, who would you like to be for a day?
Not sure, probably just me! Because I might enjoy being someone else more lol.
What's your favourite quote from a film or a book or someone you admire?
Be yourself, because an original is worth more than a copy.
What's your guilty pleasure, something you like but shouldn't?
Junk food! Why? Because it aint good for the hips. IYKYK!
