Sun Exposure Survey 2016 Methodology Report

16 Sep 2016

This research was undertaken as part of the national monitoring of sun exposure and related knowledge, attitudes, and behaviours. In addition to monitoring, this project helps to inform the activities of the skin cancer prevention sector, which includes HPA’s Sun Safety programme. The Sun Exposure Survey (SES) is an ongoing, triennial survey that has been conducted since 1994. Data collection waves prior to 2016 also involved the Cancer Society of New Zealand and the University of Otago.
