The 2008/09 New Zealand Adult Nutrition Survey (NZANS) is the fourth national population-based nutrition survey in adults and the second survey by the Ministry of Health. Earlier nutrition surveys were the 1997 National Diet Survey (Birkbeck 1983), the 1989 Life in New Zealand Survey (Russell and Wilson 1991), and the 1997 National Nutrition Survey (Russell et al 1999). This methodology report details the procedures and protocols that were followed to ensure the 2008/09 NZANS produced the high-quality and robust data expected of official statistics. Included is information on the target population and sample design; data collection instruments; final response rates; weighting; technical notes for analysis; and comparability with the 1997 National Nutrition Survey.
