What we do to help you

We work to minimise reporting burden on the community by:

    • only conducting surveys to collect high priority information where needed
    • seeking information in a way that reduces the time to respond to our surveys
    • accepting approximate responses and careful estimates where precise information is not available
    • thoroughly testing our questions before running a survey
    • using sampling methods to keep the size of surveys as small as possible.
