CERA Wellbeing Survey
How are people in Christchurch feeling about
day-to-day life and the progress of the recovery?
What's happening with stress levels as the
recovery takes shape?
The CERA Wellbeing Survey is designed so CERA
has a better understanding of how people in greater
Christchurch feel. It is a partnership between CERA,
the Christchurch City Council, Waimakariri District
Council, Selwyn District Council, the Canterbury
District Health Board, Ngai Tahu and the Natural
Hazards Research Platform.
The first of two stages is a random, representative
survey to ensure the results represent the views of
greater Christchurch residents. Nielsen, the company
carrying out the research, is surveying 2500 greater
Christchurch residents aged 18 years and over in
Christchurch city, Selwyn and Waimakariri districts.
Questions cover issues such as stress, quality of
life, social connectedness, satisfaction with the
recovery and positive and negative impacts people
This survey runs from 29 August to 14 October,
with results available as part of a CERA Canterbury
Wellbeing Index in early 2013. CERA encourages
people to complete the survey if they are invited to
The second stage of surveying gets underway from
15 October. The survey content will be exactly the
same as the random survey. However, all people
in greater Christchurch will be able to complete
this online survey. This recognises that everyone
in the area has been impacted by the earthquakes
and may want to share their views. Results will be
analysed for the common themes and issues and
will help broaden the understanding of perceptions
of recovery in greater Christchurch.
