2013 Census QuickStats about work and unpaid activities gives you information about topics relating to work and unpaid activities in New Zealand, at both national and subnational levels.

Statistics NZ sources of work data

Census is not the official source of data about work in New Zealand. The official source is Labour Market Statistics – a quarterly release that provides employment and unemployment statistics and wage and salary information. This information was previously published in the Household Labour Force Survey, Quarterly Employment Survey, and Labour Cost Index (Salary and Wage Rates) releases.

However, unlike the official employment data, which comes from surveying samples of the population, census data covers the population as a whole. It is useful for detailed regional and demographic breakdowns.

Any comparison between census data and the official measures of employment and unemployment are not recommended.

Dedication
This report is dedicated to the memory of our late colleague Sue Williams, who passed away in March 2015. Her contribution to the 2013 Census was significant. Her passion for the work, and her wealth of knowledge about the census, will be greatly missed.
