Our contribution to government goals

We support the government themes of economic transformation, families – young and old, and national identity by leading the Official Statistics System that produces information on New Zealand’s economic, social and environmental progress.

Economic transformation

We enable users of official statistics to understand the economic environment, and to support policy development and assessment. We create statistics that build a knowledge based economy, support business growth and allow economic performance to be monitored over time. Our business demography and business performance statistics enable owners to assess market, customer, trade and production trends.

Families – young and old

We provide social statistics to enable decision makers to understand the increasing diversity of New Zealand society. Relevant and authoritative statistics about family structures, dynamics and support patterns are vital to researchers and policy makers understanding the changes taking place in families and the impacts of policies and services on them. Our population, births and deaths, and injury statistics, among others, inform funding allocation of health, education and transport services.

National identity

Official statistics help all New Zealanders to understand who we are, where we live and what we do. Our statistical compendiums, such as the annual New Zealand in Profile and the two-yearly Yearbook publications, are enduring historical resources that document government, business and social developments. These publications enable New Zealanders to analyse trends over time and compare our progress with that of other countries.
