This overview of sources and methods is the pilot of a guide to the data and methods we use to compile the annual national accounts in New Zealand. The primary purpose is to specify the data and methods we currently use to compile particular published statistics, released as the National Accounts (Industry Benchmarks) and National Accounts (Income and Expenditure). This document and the associated tables provide a reference for users of New Zealand’s national accounts.
We encourage customers' feedback about what other information about concepts, sources, and methods they need. This feedback will help us target future updates.
Please email email@example.com, with ‘NA sources and methods’ in the subject line, to give us feedback on how your information needs are met by this document.
To read the document, download or print the PDF from ‘Available files’ above. If you have problems viewing the file, see Opening files and PDFs.
