June 2018

Infometrics is very pleased to announce the launch of our Megatrends report: “From Education to Employment: Megatrends affecting NZ’s working environment”.  This report is available for download from our website.

In our newsletter this month, Gareth Kiernan discusses megatrends in an interview with Liam Dann.

And, in his article about income, he dispels some myths about what defines an adequate household income in New Zealand.

Shaun Twaddle has created the Chart of the Month, that examines job openings by skills level.

We round out with another article by Gareth, discussing the role of alteration and additions in the ups and downs of the residential construction industry.

One of the comments I often hear talking to people in the residential construction industry is that alterations and new building activity move in different directions. The comment is usually made in the context of a drop-off in new building, when alterations and additions (A&A) are viewed as a cushion to soften the downturn. But the data does not back up this assertion.
