Labour Market Statistics – information releases

These releases provide New Zealand's official employment and unemployment statistics, income, and wage and salary information.

They contain information previously published in the Household Labour Force Survey, Quarterly Employment Survey, Labour Cost Index (Salary and Wage Rates), and New Zealand Income Survey releases.

On 31 March 2015, we revised the estimates from the Household Labour Force Survey in this Labour Market information release to account for the latest population estimates following the 2013 Census. We also introduced regional benchmarks to help improve the quality of our regional labour force estimates.

See Household Labour Force Survey population rebase from 2013 Census: Includes regional benchmarks for more information.
