Linked employer-employee data (LEED) for the December 2016 quarter is now available on NZ.Stat. The usual default view of data is not available for these tables. To see the LEED tables online, customers should use the 'Customise' menu to select at least one item of each dimension. Stats NZ apologises for the inconvenience.

What is NZ.Stat?

NZ.Stat is a free web tool that allows you to:

  • create tables from a wide range of large datasets
  • find a dataset by browsing through themes or searching
  • customise the table by selecting the variables you want and changing the table layout
  • view metadata alongside the table
  • download your table in Excel (up to 100,000 cells) or CSV format (up to a million cells).

NZ.Stat is powered by software provided by the OECD, which is also used by other statistical agencies around the world. 

New features in the latest version

NZ.Stat has new selection (and unselect) options which allow you to select multiple variables with one click. For example, you can select all variables at a particular level in the dimension (eg all level one industries), or all variables at a particular level within a particular node (eg all level three industries within Manufacturing).

Popular queries is a new tab in the left hand navigation panel that lists the most popular datasets.

The latest version of NZ.Stat was released on 18 February 2014.
