Professional Insights Industry Leadership and Development

Research Association New Zealand (RANZ) is the only industry body dedicated to professional providers and users of research, data and insights. The Research Association New Zealand brand is a trust-mark for clients, employers, colleagues and other industries and indicates that the bearer is a member of an expert community, which upholds the highest professional and ethical standards.

Political Polling Code

With the election fast approaching RANZ has updated its Political Polling Code. The Code provides rules for RANZ member organisations who conduct and report on political polls, plus best practice guidelines for those publishing stories on poll results.

The Code review was conducted by a team of polling experts and takes into account technology changes in data collection and reporting methodologies since it was first introduced in 2014.
