There are 2 sections to complete.

The first section asks for your personal details. This information will ensure we correctly match your survey response to you. We are wanting to send future correspondence about this project by email. If we do not already have an email address for you, we are asking you to provide one.

The second section asks for details of your current partner (if you have one) and any dependent children. We need this information as the high-wealth individuals research project will base its calculations of income on income derived by the family unit. This is similar to how income is defined for other research that uses information from Stats NZ’s Household Economic Survey. The family definitions are similar to those used in the Household Economic Survey.

If you do not know the information that is requested or if it is not applicable, please indicate this.
