Is participation in the Malta Skills Survey compulsory?
Participation in the survey is compulsory for those selected in the sample. The survey is being conducted in line with the provisions of the Malta Statistics Authority Act 2000. The NSO assures that all information is being requested in accordance with the Data Protection Act – Cap 586 of the Laws of Malta implementing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). All information provided shall remain confidential and used for statistical purposes only. We thank you in advance for your participation.
Are all sections of the questionnaire to be completed at one go?
Partial information is stored progressively when self-completing the questionnaire online. For this reason, you may stop any time and return to it later by logging-in again with your credentials.
Will I receive a paper questionnaire?
For environmental reasons, paper questionnaires will not be available. Those selected for the survey will receive an official NSO letter with the credentials and login information needed to access the online questionnaire.
How can I verify that the interviewer is legitimate and from the NSO?
Our interviewers will introduce themselves and explain that they are NSO employees. In case you have any doubts, you may contact the Office to confirm the interviewer’s identity.
