The data in this indicator is no longer being updated.

Stats NZ is developing well-being indicators, Indicators Aotearoa New Zealand - Ngā Tūtohu Aotearoa, to track New Zealand’s progress. As the well-being indicators have similar aims to the NZ Progress Indicators and NZ Social Indicators, we are reviewing the future of these existing indicators.

Please contact us at info@stats.govt.nz if you have any questions.

Why is this important for social statistics?

We collect information about people’s participation in the arts and their leisure time because these play an important part in quality of life. Leisure time is a crucial part of a balanced lifestyle. Participating in arts and cultural activities can add meaning to life, and create a sense of identity and connectedness for people and communities.
