Previous initiatives

We are committed to developing our tools and services to better meet your information needs.


NZ.Stat is a free web tool that replaced Table Builder and Infoshare. NZ.Stat allows you to:

  • download large volumes of data (up to 100,000 cells in Excel, and 1,000,000 in CSV format)
  • search for items within dimensions
  • view metadata alongside the table (rather than in a separate window).

NZ.Stat is powered by software provided by the OECD, which is also used by other statistical agencies around the world.

More information on the project can be found on the NZ.Stat homepage here.

International Year of Statistics 2013

Cross-government collaboration strengthens international relationships

Statistics NZ worked with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade to support the launch of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) strategy in 2012. Our data was used to create an ASEAN infographic.

Statistics 2020 Te Kāpehu Whetū

Statistics 2020 Te Kāpehu Whetū (Stats 2020) outlines our vision for the future. It is our long-term transformation programme that requires a shift in organisation culture and capability, to ensure that we are a national statistics office that is fit for the future. Stats 2020 will allow us to more effectively and efficiently meet user needs (including Māori and iwi information needs), and obtain greater value from the Government’s investment in official statistics.

Our Annual report 2011/12 has more information on Stats 2020, including measures of our progress.

Better public services for business

The Better Public Services for Business – Result 9 Action Plan was an initiative where Statistics NZ worked closely with the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, Inland Revenue, and the Accident Compensation Corporation to outline how businesses could work more easily with government.

Performance improvement framework

The performance improvement framework (PIF) review is an independent assessment of Statistics NZ's performance that provides recommendations for improvements. Read more about PIFs on the States Services Commission website.
