Transport drives down total greenhouse gas emissions in 2020 – Stats NZ media release

Transport
drives down total greenhouse gas emissions in 2020 – Media release

8 April 2021

New experimental figures show New Zealand’s
greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions were down 4.8 percent (3,931 kilotonnes)
in the year ended December 2020, largely driven by a fall in transport
emissions reflecting the impact of COVID-19 on the economy and society
throughout the year, Stats NZ said today.

Despite the strong rebound in emissions in
the September 2020 quarter, overall annual emissions fell due to decreases
in total emissions in the March, June, and December 2020 quarters.

“The fall in emissions in the December quarter
mirrors the fall in economic activity which followed the September rebound,”
environmental economic accounts manager Stephen Oakley said.

Emissions were down 1.7 percent in the December
2020 quarter, compared with gross domestic product (GDP) which was down
1.0 percent.

Impacts of COVID-19 on methodology for the March 2021 quarter CPI – Stats NZ methods paper

Impacts of COVID-19 on methodology
for the March 2021 quarter CPI

– Methods paper

1 April 2021

This page summarises the impacts of COVID-19
on the methodology used for the March 2021 quarter consumers price index
(CPI) following on from our December 2020 quarter paper (see
Impacts
of COVID-19 on the methodology used for the December 2020 quarter CPI
).

We focus on collection issues, imputation
to replace missing prices, reintroducing prices for missing items, reweighting
the CPI basket, and seasonal adjustment.

COVID-19 has created some unprecedented data
collection and methodological challenges for the CPI in 2020 and 2021.
In the March 2021 quarter, in-person collection of data from stores ceased
for two short periods in February and March, which meant contacting business
respondents was more difficult. We’re also reintroducing the prices for
an additional international airfare route (on top of the one reintroduced
last quarter) as more people start to fly as travel restrictions ease.
