Cultural Indicators for New Zealand: 2006

When the Cultural Statistics Programme was established in 1993, the production of a report which brought together key indicators for the cultural sector was identified as a priority. Over its first decade, the programme, a joint initiative of the Ministry for Culture and Heritage and Statistics New Zealand, has focused on developing, collecting and making available statistics over a wide range of areas in the cultural sector.

This report establishes the indicators within a framework of five theme areas, which broadly reflect key goals for the New Zealand cultural sector and those involved in it. Not all the indicators have been able to be populated, due to lack of data in some areas. The report identifies areas where more information is needed. In the next few years, it is likely that data will be collected to populate some areas highlighted for further development, and new indicators may be introduced as priorities change. It is intended to update the existing indicators as new data becomes available (such as through the 2006 Census).

Cultural Indicators for New Zealand: 2006 is the result of a long period of development, and the hard work of Ministry for Culture and Heritage and Statistics NZ staff. The report is an important contribution to making information about the cultural sector more accessible to the public.
