Gross Domestic Product per capita of New Zealand regions

Year ended March 2016, NZD per person

Data calculation/treatment

For the 2007–15 estimates, the regional GDP method Stats NZ used for most industries was a ‘bottom-up’ (based on unit data) approach. Industry contributions for 2015 are to be treated as provisional as we work towards improving the timeliness of the balanced national accounts, due to be undertaken in 2017.
For 2016 provisional estimates, final unit data was unavailable. Stats NZ used alternative data sources with a regional dimension (such as Linked Employer-Employee Data, LEED) to derive provisional regional GDP estimates for 2016. Because of the lower quality of the data sources used, Stats NZ have only provided provisional estimates for the region totals.

Tasman and Nelson regions have been combined to maintain data quality standards.
Chatham Islands has been combined with Canterbury to maintain data quality standards.
Gross domestic product is based on the year ended March. Population estimates are based on the year ended June.
