As part of its leadership role in strengthening the official statistics system, Statistics New Zealand is developing domain plans as a key part of working together with other agencies to improve official statistics.
The Agriculture, Horticulture, and Forestry Domain Plan has been jointly developed by Statistics NZ and the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. The process involved consultation with organisations that included the Ministry for the Environment, Department of Labour, Ministry of Economic Development, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Meat and Wool New Zealand.
A series of ‘enduring topics’ was developed from policy and other documents, plus input from those involved in the consultation. A stocktake of information sources that feed into the topics was undertaken. Information gaps were identified and initiatives developed to meet these gaps.
The Agriculture, Horticulture, and Forestry Domain Plan outlines the main statistical priorities for the sector and the strategy for addressing these over, at least, the next five to eight years.
