Stats NZ


Job: a unique employer-employee pair present on an EMS in the reference quarter.
Full-quarter jobs: jobs that exist continuously over the reference quarter.
Total filled jobs: The number of jobs (defined as an employer-employee match) on the 15th of the middle month of the reference quarter. Does not distinguish between part-time and full-time jobs.

Māori authority: having a Māori business flag on the Business Register. This flag denotes:
• business with a collectively managed asset, which uses current Inland Revenue eligibility criteria to be a Māori authority (irrespective of whether the enterprise elects to be a Māori authority for tax purposes)
• commercial business that supports the Māori authority’s business and social activities, and sustains or builds a Māori authority’s asset base
• business that is at least 50 percent owned by a Māori authority.

A Māori small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) is a business or enterprise with the following characteristics:
• the business owner(s) define it as a Māori business
• it is not owned by another enterprise
• it is not a Māori authority
• it has at least one employee (including any proprietor paid as an employee) and fewer than 100 employees.

Limitations of the data

The businesses covered are not an exhaustive list of all Māori enterprises. Stats NZ focus on businesses they can readily identify as Māori enterprises. Some examples of the type of enterprises known to be missed include small businesses with an average turnover of less than $30,000, or those with fewer than six employees.
These statistics are provisional, and updates in the series may be incorporated in subsequent releases.

About this dataset

The data is derived from the LEED dataset, which is created by linking a longitudinal employer series from the Stats NZ Business Frame to a longitudinal series of EMS payroll data from Inland Revenue.
This subset of the LEED dataset is for Māori enterprises.

Purpose of collection

Official quarterly statistics produced from LEED measure labour market dynamics at various levels – including industry, region, territorial authority, firm size, sector, sex, and age – providing an insight into the operation of New Zealand's labour market. Stats NZ releases other official labour market statistics that show changes in employment at an aggregate level. Statistics from LEED, such as job and worker flows, help to explain what causes these aggregate movements and are therefore useful for explaining changes in the labour market.
