In most cases calls are made randomly to landlines or mobile numbers across Australia. In some cases when we call mobiles we will first need to check if you live in the area in which a given survey is being conducted.
While none of our surveys are compulsory, our clients and ourselves appreciate your participation. In order to ensure that our surveys are representative, McNair yellowSquares is permitted to call both silent numbers and numbers that are on the Do Not Call Register. However, you may request not to be called by us.
Note that for most surveys the Government require us to make several attempts to call your number. From time to time the system may mistakenly hang up on you. This may occur during peak interviewing times. We apologise for any inconvenience.
All telephone surveys conducted by McNair yellowSquares may be monitored or recorded for training and quality control purposes. Respondents have the option to discontinue the survey at any time.
McNair yellowSquares conducts interviews during the following hours:
Monday to Friday: 10am to 8:30pm

Our main current surveys are:
South Australian Population Health Survey (SAPHS) monitors population trends in health risk factors and chronic diseases on behalf of the South Australia Health so that the SA Health has information to monitor population health status and to assist in the planning, implementation and evaluation of health services, policies and programs. On average, the survey takes 20 minutes to complete. All answers are confidential and all results will be presented in a form that does not allow any individual's answers to be identified. Participants are selected to participate by the generation of Random phone numbers – both mobile numbers and landlines. While best efforts are made to only select people in South Australia, some mobile numbers from other states are called.
Participants have the option to nominate an alternative time to complete the survey, and also have to option to complete the survey online at their convenience.

The South Australian Public Hospital Consumer Experience Survey (SACESS) is conducted amongst a sample of people that have recently stayed at least overnight in a public hospital in South Australia.

We will be contacting beef and dairy producers and veterinarians in Australia and New Zealand who work with beef and dairy to discuss current animal health practices and obtain their reaction to a new product concept. The study will help animal health companies do a better job at providing veterinary and animal health solutions.

The survey will mainly discuss the different de-wormer or cattle drench products. Throughout this survey the term de-wormer or cattle drench refers to various formulations of veterinary products with label indications for the treatment and / or control of internal parasites (worms). Some of these products also provide control of external parasites (flies, ticks, grubs and lice).
The survey takes approximately 20 minutes and an honorarium will be offered as a token of our appreciation.
