Regional Economic Forecasts
What are the Regional Economic Forecasts?

Infometrics’ regional forecasts provide a five-year outlook of employment and GDP across 54 industries covering the whole economy for each territorial authority and regional council area in New Zealand.

These ‘business as usual’ forecasts unpack our national industry outlooks into regional council area and territorial authority based on historic trends, patterns and relationships and Infometrics’ view of how the New Zealand and international economy will unfold over the next few years.

How can the Regional Economic Forecasts be used?

The rigorous, data-driven projections of employment and GDP offered by the Regional Economic Forecasts can be used by councils, education providers, economic development agencies, Regional Skills Leadership Groups, Workforce Development Councils and iwi as an evidence base for regional and sectoral planning to provide an insight into how your region is likely to perform in the future and which industries are expected drive this performance.
