National Statistics 85% open

New Zealand

What data is expected?

Key national statistics on demographic and economic indicators such as Gross Domestic Product (GDP), or unemployment and population statistics. See our methodology section for more information.

  • Gross Domestic Product
  • National unemployment
  • National population

How open is the data?

Population statistics are outdated. Last census data relate to 2013, latest birth and death statistics are available for 2015 (an update of annual data for 2016 was postponed from February 2017 to May 2017). GDP for latest quarter via, but not clear which rows apply to GDP without additional research.

Thank you Jonathan Hunt for contributing to the Global Open Data Index. Added XLS format to B8, updated B9 to 2 as data is in XLS & CVS files.
