For New Zealand, survey-based labor status (labor force, employment, unemployment rate, etc.), employment by industry, and hours worked; for the country, regional councils and districts; annual.
The unemployment rate is the figure given when amount of unemployed people are divided by the labour force, this is expressed as a percentage.
These are annual average figures. Data may be suppressed for some regions for some of the reported years. Results are subject to large sample errors, especially in the smaller regions.
We produce seasonally adjusted versions of the LFS quartet at the regional council geo level.
HLFS estimates are benchmarked to the results ("estimated resident population") of the national census, conducted every five years.
