The findings from the WIPNZ have identified some ways in which society is changing in relation to the use of the Internet in New Zealand. The ISPP aims to focus on these issues.
The WIPNZ involves a large survey facilitated every two years, so in order to provide current topical data in a shorter timeframe, we developed the ISPP. This study will involve sequential surveys of topics in depth examining specific issues relating to the impact of the Internet on society. The first survey round focuses on social networking and its effects on individuals.
The first round of the Internet and Society Panel study is a joint venture between the Institute of Culture, Discourse and Communication and Phoenix Research Ltd, who administer the data collection. Key topics examined will include:
This first round of this study has been supported by funding from the Faculty of the Applied Humanities at AUT University.
