Research Ngā Rangahau


As part of the BSA’s role to oversee and develop the broadcasting standards system, we also commission and publish research.

Our research helps us understand community attitudes and expectations around broadcasting. It informs the application and development of broadcasting standards by making sure that the decisions we make reflect our community’s diverse, contemporary attitudes and opinions.

Our research also assists broadcasters to understand what the community thinks and how the standards apply.

Our research documents are available to be downloaded free of charge. Printed copies of the most recent research reports may be available and you can contact us to request a copy. All research is the sole property of the BSA (unless otherwise indicated).

Warning: Some of these reports and the summaries on this website contain language and content that some people may find offensive.
