Consultation on the Terms of Reference
1 September 2021
The Government asked the New Zealand Productivity Commission to prepare the Terms of Reference for a new inquiry into the drivers of persistent disadvantage within people’s lifetimes and across generations.
During July and August 2021, the Commission sought feedback from across Aotearoa to help shape the Terms of Reference. Over 1,000 responses were received from people who completed an online form, made a submission, or met or talked with our people. The online form included four open-ended questions seeking to elicit free text responses.
We sought assistance from Text Ferret Ltd to extract actionable information from these free text responses. Text Ferret Ltd received a dataset containing responses from 875 individuals.
