About us

Statistics New Zealand Tatauranga Aotearoa is a government department and New Zealand’s national statistical office. We are New Zealand's major source of official statistics, administer the Statistics Act 1975, and lead the Official Statistics System.

Our goal is to give New Zealand the statistical information it needs to grow and prosper.

We’ve been publishing statistics for nearly 120 years and have three offices, one in Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch, with around 1,000 staff in total.
