Identify your strengths and weaknesses

The ranking infographic included in the Regional Economic Profile shows in which indicators your region ranks highly and in which it ranks poorly.  This enables you to immediately identify in which areas of the economy your region is performing well and where it is performing poorly.

Infometrics web-based annual Regional Economic Profiles have become the benchmark for gaining an in-depth understanding of the economic structure of your region’s economy, how well it is performing relative to all other regional economies, business growth, which industries are contributing to growth and how this impacts on standard of living..  Plus a wealth of information ranging from employment, GDP right through to tourism estimates, earnings, housing affordability and beneficiary numbers there is something for everyone.

Your region may appear to be performing well according to certain indicators in terms of growth rates but the real test is how well it is performing compared to other regions. The Regional Economic Profile enables you to compare your region’s performance in all indicators against all other regions and territorial authorities in New Zealand.



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 among districts within the region.  At Infometrics we collect all our data at territorial authority level and then aggregate them up to regional council level. The Regional Economic Profile is available for every territorial authority and region in New Zealand.

Industry and TA specific

Our clients tell us that having access to detailed industry data is important for understanding about structure and performance of their economies. Data is available to the 500 industry level in the Regional Economic Profile.

Free up your staff's time

Do away with the time consuming tasks of data collection and analysis. Infometrics Regional Economic Profile puts the key indicators at your team’s finger tips in a user friendly and visually attractive framework. Access to the data frees up their time to concentrate on the more strategic issues.

The Regional Economic Profile is a huge database of economic indicators and it has been our challenge to present this data to the user in an accessible and user-friendly manner. We have achieved this through the use of interactive tables and charts, infographics and download functions. Our clients frequently tell us how easy the product is to use.

If you choose to subscribe to the online version it is particulary easy to use. The charts and tables are dynamic and interactive enabling the user to compare the characteristics of each area unit with other jurisdictions.  Each indicator can be viewed graphically and the underlying data downloaded into Excel.
