The New Zealand Social Statistics Network (NZSSN) assists in developing social science research in the academic, government, and private sectors, following the model of the Australian Consortium for Social and Political Research Incorporated (ACSPRI).

NZSSN's core business is the running of short courses in social science research methods. Our next planned course programme is in November 2019. It will take place in Wellington, at a new venue for us, the Massey University Campus. Please peruse the list of courses below along with the dates we hope to offer them. As ever, courses will run based on numbers enrolled, so please enrol early so we can confirm courses. We have also seen large price increases for room bookings, so courses may require larger numbers to run.

We have greatly simplified our fee structure this time as well, please see the details below. We are no longer running an earlybird fee period, but have reduced student fees across the board while leaving those for other participants between the old earlybird and full fees.

We will decide for sure which courses we can run on Friday 11 October 2019 for Wellington and Friday 31 January 2020 for Auckland.
