Changes to data collection/processing
In the June quarter of 2016 a redeveloped version of the Household Labour Force Survey went into the field. The key purpose of the 2016 Household Labour Force Survey redevelopment was to improve the relevance and quality of the labour market statistics.
The new content includes more information about the nature of people’s employment conditions and work arrangements. This data can be used to better understand different patterns of employment.
The redeveloped HLFS also includes more detail from respondents who work in more than one job during a reference week. Multiple job holders are asked about the industry, occupation, employment status, and hours of their second job. Until now, the HLFS collected these details only on the respondents’ main job.

Purpose of collection
The primary purpose of the survey is to estimate the number of people employed, unemployed, and not in the labour force (NILF), and from them, the unemployment rate for the New Zealand labour market. The Household Labour Force Survey (HLFS) is designed to produce statistics at the family level, and use of the survey for a purpose for which it was not designed is inevitably subject to some limitations.
