Non-sampling errors

Description

Given the nature of the data we collect, there are limitations on the level of accuracy we can expect from the survey. For example, some respondents may not keep records in the form required for the survey, so may need to estimate, and non-sampling error may occur. Non-sampling errors include mistakes by respondents when completing questionnaires, variation in the respondents' interpretation of the questions asked, and errors made during the processing of the data. We have extensive procedures to minimise these types of errors, but they may still occur and are not quantifiable.

Inclusive : Yes.
