Monitor your local economy with our new web-based system

Infometrics quarterly economic reports are now web-based. The product enables councils and economic development agencies to keep their finger on the economic pulse of their local economies.  A feature much appreciated by our clients is that the system enables our clients to compare their growth performance with all other districts and regions in New Zealand.

The system draws together a wide range of indicators including our own estimates of GDP growth and unemployment. The dairy payout can have a significant impact on regional economies and we present our own estimates of the expected size of the dairy payout in the current season and how it has changed from the previous seasons.  We have recently added Marketview measures of retail sales. Other indicators include vehicle sales, house prices, building consents, traffic flows, guest nights and international net migration.

Our quarterly infographic enables our clients to immediately identify which indicators their region is performing well in relative to all other districts in New Zealand.
