Tatauranga umanga Māori: 2021 pūrongo matatini – Statistics on Māori businesses: 2021 technical report

30 November 2022

Tatauranga umanga Māori: 2021 pūrongo matatini – Statistics on Māori businesses: 2021 technical report provides contextual and technical information about Stats NZ’s publication of tatauranga umanga Māori (TUM) – statistics on Māori businesses.

Executive summary

TUM covers Māori authorities (MAs), other Māori enterprises (OMEs), and Māori tourism businesses. The Māori business population for TUM has historically been collated from three sources:

  • MAs are identified through a tax code provided to Stats NZ by Inland Revenue | Te Tari Taake (IRD).
  • OMEs and Māori tourism businesses are identified through their affiliation with Māori organisations that provide Stats NZ with their membership lists.
  • Māori businesses self-identify via the Stats NZ Business Operations Survey (BOS).

New homes consented per 1,000 residents continues to rise – Stats NZ media and information release: Building consents issued: October 2022

New homes consented per 1,000 residents continues to rise – Media release

30 November 2022

The national number of new homes consented per 1,000 residents was 9.8 in the year ended October 2022, up from 9.4 in the previous year, Stats NZ said today.

The highest number of new homes consented per 1,000 residents nationally was 13.4 in the year ended December 1973, and the lowest was 3.0 in the July 2011 year, after the global financial crisis.

“The number of new homes consented per 1,000 residents is useful for comparing the number of new homes consented across the regions, as it accounts for the difference in population between areas,” construction and property statistics manager Michael Heslop said.

Methodology for value of building work put in place: September 2022 quarter onwards – Methods paper

29 November 2022

This page summarises methodology changes we will introduce in Value of building work put in place: September 2022 quarter.

These statistics estimate the value and volume of work put in place on building projects in New Zealand. They include a modelled and surveyed component. We are reducing the number of building projects surveyed to ensure the sustainability of the survey.

From now on, value of building work statistics will be provisional for three quarters from when they were first published. For example, statistics for the March 2022 quarter will remain provisional until we publish statistics for the December 2022 quarter. During this time, they may be updated to reflect improved survey information and model adjustments.
