About Statistics New Zealand
Unleashing the power of data to change lives
Statistics New Zealand's purpose is to empower decisions by adding value to New Zealand's most important data.
The goal of Statistics New Zealand is to increase the value of data to decision-makers 10-fold in the next 15 years. This will require focused and coordinated effort across the data ecosystem.
Building strong relationships with suppliers, stakeholders, and customers is the foundation of how Statistics works to ensure availability of data for decision-makers, policy-writers, Māori and iwi, businesses, community groups, and individuals.
