What we offer
Infometrics has the most comprehensive repository of economic data for every territorial authority and region in New Zealand. We deliver this data through a series of web-based products which are dynamic and interactive.
Our products are web-based, which means they are both dynamic and interactive. There are also a number of economic tools behind the scenes that can give your staff deeper insights and answer ‘what if’ questions about your region.
Infometrics has developed a range on insights into the Māori economy with a focus on employment, the wider labour market, and skilled jobs. Our insights are available at a regional and territorial authority level. We make sure your team has all the right data to help you make evidence-based decisions and that everyone in your team has access to the same detailed information of your region or sector’s workforce and contribution to the economy.
The current Labour-led administration is broadening the government’s policy focus beyond the standard fiscal and economic indicators to incorporate wellbeing. This change explicitly recognises that New Zealanders’ quality of life cannot be captured in a single measure such as GDP per capita.
Regional Wellbeing: A broader view of community outcomes around New Zealand marks the first attempt to comprehensively report on wellbeing at a local level around New Zealand. It covers 30 indicators and draws from Infometrics’ online Regional Wellbeing Framework.
From Education to Employment: Megatrends affecting NZ’s working environment report looks at key emerging trends that are likely to affect our working environment over the next 20 years. This report is a must read for strategists, planners, employers, tertiary education organisations and anyone interested in regional economic development.
The Infometrics Regional Perspectives report provides an outlook for employment and economic activity across the regions of New Zealand over the next 2-5 years. The report highlights key industries, both positive and negative, affecting economic growth in the regions. It also examines some of the areas that are expected to be among the top performers and looks at their recipe for success. This information will help your organisation plan for future growth around New Zealand.
Territorial authority level data can often mask vast differences in fortunes of towns and communities within districts. For this reason, we have developed small area profiles that give decision makers in the provinces the ability to get detailed economic and social insights of each small area within their jurisdiction.
Infometrics’ regional forecasting framework provides a five-year outlook of employment and GDP by 54 industries for each territorial authority and region in New Zealand. These are ‘business as usual forecasts’ and provide an insight into how your region is likely to perform given Infometrics’ view of how the New Zealand and international economy will unfold over the next few years. These forecasts can assist you in your strategic planning for your area.
The Regional Hotspots report highlights what we believe to be some of the key growth regions for New Zealand over the next decade. For each hotspot growth area, we discuss the opportunities arising in these growth areas as well as potential challenges posed by growth in these areas.
