Geographical and industry detail

Many official regional economic indicators are only available at regional council level.  This is frustrating for territorial authorities who know that the regional picture disguises the differences between districts within the region.  At Infometrics we collect all our data at territorial authority level and then aggregate them up to regional council level. This means our Regional Economic Profiles are available for every territorial authority and region in New Zealand.

Our clients also tell us that having access to detailed industry data is important for understanding the structure and performance of their economies. Data is available to the detailed industry level in the Regional Economic Profile.

Many of our clients make profiles for their area available to the public on their website. This allows direct public access to regional economic data and creates open dialog and participation.
