Economy - Regional Gross Domestic Product by region and industry 2000–2016
Gross domestic product (GDP): Total market value of goods and services produced in a given area, minus the cost of goods and services used in the production process.
Gross domestic product (GDP) per capita: The economic output of a geographic area divided by the population in that geographic area.
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.
Figures may not sum to totals due to rounding.
Some ANZSIC 2006 industries have been combined to maintain data quality standards.
