Workforce Questionnaires

The workforce questionnaire collects data on staff employed in tertiary education providers that receive government funding.

Revised data collection

From 2015 onwards, data on staff numbers is being collected for the full calendar year. The collection of annual data will take place in conjunction with the December Single Data Return (SDR).

The first annual collection of staff numbers is taking place with the 2015 December SDR. The first collection has an extended deadline of 29 February 2016. The first annual staff data collection will be for the 2015 calendar year.

Data required from subsidiaries or third-party organisations

Staff members who carry out 'academic' or 'research-only' activities for your organisation via a subsidiary or third party can be reported on by your organisation in the spreadsheets marked 'subsidiary age group' and 'subsidiary ethnic group'.

If you do not collect or hold FTE and headcount data from subsidiaries and third parties, this allows time for arrangements to be put in place to gather this data.

If you currently have data on staff members who carry out 'academic' or 'research-only' activities for your organisation via a subsidiary or third party, please report the data.

The workforce questionnaire is to be submitted in Excel format only. If you have any problems downloading or accessing these documents, please contact service.desk@education.govt.nz.
