27/11/14: New approach to surveys in Wales

The Welsh Government and Welsh Government Sponsored Bodies commission a range of large-scale surveys of people in Wales. They include the National Survey for Wales, the Welsh Health Survey, the Active Adults Survey, the Arts in Wales Survey, and the Welsh Outdoor Recreation Survey.

Review of options

In May 2014, we commissioned a review of options for how these surveys could be carried out in future. The review was based on desk research and interviews with survey managers and included a review of similar work in other countries. The three main options considered were:

  • using cheaper survey methods such as telephone or online;
  • reducing the number of interviews or frequency of data collection; and
  • integrating two or more surveys into a single survey.
