NZ.Stat business demography tables
Business demographic statistics give an annual snapshot (as at February) of the structure and characteristics of New Zealand businesses. The tables below are based on the latest business demography statistics. This series is based on the Statistics New Zealand Longitudinal Business Frame.
Business demography statistics are limited to economically significant individual, private-sector and public-sector enterprises that are engaged in the production of goods and services in New Zealand. These enterprises are maintained on the Statistics NZ Business Frame, which generally includes all employing units and those enterprises with GST turnover greater than $30,000 per year.
These business demography statistics are published using the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification 2006 (ANZSIC06). The ANZSIC06 series was back-cast to 2000.
The business size (employment measure) used in these tables is the employee count (EC). The EC data is sourced from the Linked Employer-Employee Database.
Area boundaries use the 2013 boundary pattern.
Note: Please view the Business Demography Statistics: Data quality (including data limitations) in conjunction with these tables.
