Quarterly Economic Monitor

Really get to know your region

Decision makers in local government require accurate and easily understood economic information about your district or region to help you plan for regional economic growth.  The Quarterly Economic Monitor enables you to keep your finger on the economic pulse of your local area.

Timely reporting on a range of indicators

The QEM is a web-based framework which delivers to you a wide range of  economic, labour market, and housing indicators, as well as commentary on your local economy. The monitor is up-to-date, being published two months after the end of each quarter.

Monitor your economic development strategy

Your economic development strategy is likely to contain key performance indicators against which you will measure the future performance of your region’s economy. The QEM will help you monitor the progress of your economy against these indicators.  The ranking infographic included in the web framework shows which indicators your region ranks highly in and which it ranks poorly in.

Compare your region against your comparators

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 QEM enables you to compare your region’s growth in all indicators against all other regions and territorial authorities in New Zealand.

Improving the flow of information to businesses

Many councils and economic development agencies choose to make the QEM publicly available on their website.  The QEM can help businesses in your region make informed strategic decisions and attract new investment to your region.

Innovative presentation

The QEM is web-based. The charts and tables are dynamic and interactive enabling the user to compare the characteristics of each area with other jurisdictions. Each indicator can be viewed graphically and the underlying data downloaded into Excel.
