Limitations of the data

Compositional effects between industries can affect the Quarterly Employment Survey when industries with higher or lower earnings than the average total hourly earnings for all industries change in relative importance (eg make up a bigger share of the total hours).
Compositional changes within industries can affect the Quarterly Employment Survey, as the composition of the paid workforce is reflected (eg the occupations that firms hire).

Inclusions

Because this survey collects data from employers, jobs filled by overseas workers resident in New Zealand for less than 12 months are included. This is different from the Household Labour Force Survey.

Exclusions

The QES does not include data from the agriculture, fisheries, and several smaller industries, or earnings from self-employment.

Weights are allocated to each of the selected business locations. These represent the population weights based on employee counts sourced from the Business Frame.
