Regional Wellbeing Report

The current Labour-led administration is broadening the government’s policy focus beyond the standard fiscal and economic indicators to incorporate wellbeing. This change explicitly recognises that New Zealanders’ quality of life cannot be captured in a single measure such as GDP per capita.
Regional Wellbeing: A broader view of community outcomes around New Zealand marks the first attempt to comprehensively report on wellbeing at a local level around New Zealand. It covers 30 indicators and draws from Infometrics’ online Regional Wellbeing Framework.

Regional Economic Profile

The profile gives an in-depth description of your local area’s economic structure and performance, complete with tools for behind-the-scenes analysis.

Small area profiles

Territorial authority level data can often mask vast differences in fortunes of towns and communities within districts. For this reason, we have developed small area profiles that give decision makers in the provinces the ability to get detailed economic and social insights of each small area within their jurisdiction.

Regional Economic Forecasts

Infometrics’ regional forecasting framework provides a five-year outlook of employment and GDP by 54 industries for each territorial authority and region in New Zealand. These are ‘business as usual forecasts’ and provide an insight into how your region is likely to perform given Infometrics’ view of how the New Zealand and international economy will unfold over the next few years.  These forecasts can assist you in your strategic planning for your area.
