The National Survey for Wales is a study of adults across the whole of Wales. It covers a range of topics, and asks for people's views on:
- their local public services, such as transport, education, and health services;
- their local area and neighbourhood; and
- how well the government is performing, both locally and nationally.
The Welsh Government is working to help make our country a better place to live and work. This is your opportunity to give your opinion on a wide range of issues affecting Wales, and make a difference to the decisions they make in future. The research is being carried out for the first time this year, reflecting the growing role the public can have in shaping Welsh Government policy.
This research is being conducted on behalf of the Welsh Government by two independent research organisations, TNS-BMRB and Beaufort Research. An interviewer will call at your home in the next few weeks. They will randomly select one person in your household to take part in a short interview, which will take place in your home. If the interviewer calls at a time that is not convenient, they will be happy to make an appointment for another time.
All TNS-BMRB and Beaufort interviewers carry a Market Identity Card. You should not let anyone into your home if they do not show you this card.
