The New Zealand Social Statistics Network 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, and our next planned programme of courses is in February 2018 in Auckland.
