Disposable income per person

The data in this indicator is no longer being updated.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 measure this because increasing national disposable income can improve the standard of living of the population. Effectively, this measure shows the amount of goods and services available to New Zealanders.

This indicator measures real gross national disposable income (RGNDI) per person, in inflation-adjusted dollars.
