The challenges of collecting data

From Nights, 9:15 pm on 17 April 2024

We have our monthly chat with the good people at Stats NZ where we find out what statistics can tell us about life here in Aotearoa New Zealand and what they can't tell us.

Chief executive of Stats NZ Mark Sowden joins Nights to discuss why collecting data in this country has been getting more and more challenging.
