These tables were published on Figure.NZ as digital support for the NZTech report titled "Digital Nation New Zealand, from tech sector to digital nation”. The aim of this report is to deepen understanding and discussions about the benefits technology brings and the role that it could play in redefining the New Zealand we live in.

NZTech engaged independent economic consultancy, the New Zealand Institute of Economic Research (NZIER) to analyse the sector and provide input into this report. Given the complexity of the task, another independent economic consultancy, Sapere was engaged to provide a peer review.
