Stats NZ: Abortion statistics

Abortion statistics

16 June 2021

Abortion statistics measure the number of induced abortions that occur in New Zealand hospitals or licensed abortion clinics.

Since 1998, Stats NZ has been processing, analysing, and publishing abortion statistics on behalf of the Abortions Supervisory Committee (part of the Ministry of Justice).

The Ministry of Health (MoH) has taken over responsibility for the collection, analysis, and publication of abortion statistics, with the 2020 statistics being published towards the end of this year. This is a result of the enactment of the Abortion Legislation Bill, which became law on 23 March 2020. Abortions became decriminalised and abortion services have been aligned with other health services.

Stats NZ has passed all historical data to MoH, however, information available on Infoshare will remain available as well. Enquiries for MoH can be sent to data-enquiries@health.govt.nz.

Vegetable prices rise in May – Stats NZ media and information release: Food price index: May 2021

Vegetable
prices rise in May – Media release

15 June 2021

Rising vegetable prices were the largest
contributor to a 0.4 percent rise for food prices in May 2021, Stats NZ
said today.

Vegetable prices rose 3.4 percent in May,
with rising prices for tomatoes, capsicum, and lettuce. These rises were
partly offset by lower prices for fruit, down 5.2 percent, with falling
prices for kiwifruit and mandarins.

Tomato prices continued to rise in May, up
17 percent, after having more than doubled in April. See

Corrections to International trade: March 2021 quarter – Stats NZ information release

Corrections
to International trade: March 2021 quarter

14 June 2021

We have made corrections to International
trade: March 2021 quarter
release,
published 2 June 2021.

We found an error in the calculation of good
imports of $216 million (1.5%), for the March 2021 quarter. This affects
total imports ($18.5b to $18.7b, down 5.5% instead of 6.6%) and thus two-way
trade ($36.1b to $36.3b, up 0.5%). We have amended the key facts, tables,
and CSV.

We apologise for any inconvenience the error
has caused.

International migration: April 2021 ? Infoshare tables – Stats NZ information release

International
migration: April 2021 – Infoshare tables – Information release

14 June 2021

International migration statistics give the
latest outcomes-based measure of migration, which includes estimates of
migrants entering or leaving New Zealand.

Key facts

The comparisons between the April 2021 and
2020 months and years use the latest provisional estimates for each period.

The provisional estimates have 95 percent
confidence intervals (±) beside them – the wider the interval, the greater
the uncertainty about the estimate. However, these intervals reflect the
model uncertainty, not the extent of future revisions to provisional data.

Provisional migration estimates are revised
each month until they are finalised after 16 months.
Migration
data transformation
has more information
about the migration estimates, including the 12/16-month rule.

bubble lifts travel – Media release

14 June 2021

The number of people crossing New Zealand’s
border has climbed since two-way quarantine-free travel opened with Australia
on 19 April 2021, Stats NZ said today.

There were 85,900 border crossings in April
2021, made up of 47,000 arrivals and 38,900 departures. Total border crossings
were well up compared with the earlier months of 2021, which averaged 26,300

are significantly lower than levels before COVID-19, when border crossings
were as high as 1.2 million in April,” population indicators manager Tehseen
Islam said.
