The poll was a telephone survey by UMR of 750 New Zealanders 18 years of age and older, conducted from 22 to 27 March 2012.

The margin of error for sample size of 750 for a 50% figure at the '95% confidence level' is +/-3.6%.

Media coverage of the ACC privacy incident (first published on 15 March 2012) may have affected poll results for some questions. Field work dates for the poll were fixed before the ACC story broke.
