New Zealand Framework for Cultural Statistics

"In 1993, the Ministry of Cultural Affairs approached Statistics New Zealand to discuss strategies for improving the range and quality of statistical information available on New Zealand's cultural sector. With its responsibility for collecting statistics relevant to the needs of government, business and the community, Statistics New Zealand agreed that improvement was needed. In order to define what was meant by 'cultural statistics' and to provide direction for future work, it was agreed that the first priority should be the production of a framework for cultural statistics.

Statistical Classification of Financial Assets and Liabilities

"The main purpose of classifying financial assets and liabilities is to provide consistent and relevant statistics that support economic analysis and macroeconomic management for New Zealand. As these classes have economic-based meanings, their definitions can vary from accounting and taxation definitions. Financial assets and liabilities will respond differently to fiscal and monetary policy depending on their type, and under various economic conditions.

Fertility – Standard Classification

"Fertility is one of the main ways through which the size and/or composition of a population may change. Statistics on fertility are required to provide basic demographic information, and to inform the study of differences and changes in reproductive patterns, family size and structure in various age, ethnic and other sub-groups, including geographic areas, of the New Zealand population.

Family Type

"Family type is a key variable for determining the demographic characteristics of a population. Five classifications are included in the scope of this statistical standard: family type classification; family nucleus containing birth/biological, adopted children classification; family nucleus containing step children classification; family nucleus containing grandparent(s) in a parent role classification; family nucleus containing other children classification.

Ethnicity New Zealand Standard Classification

"The standard classification of ethnicity is a hierarchical classification of four levels. Level 1 of the classification has six categories and is used solely for output. Level 2 has 21 categories, level 3 has 36 categories and level 4 has 233 categories – excluding residual categories."

Energy Types Used in Private Dwellings – Standard Classification

"Information on the types of energy consumed in occupied New Zealand private dwellings is used for marketing research and to monitor changes, over time, in the energy types used by New Zealand households. It is an indicator of the habitability of houses, when used in conjunction with information on dampness and insulation levels and is an important variable in deriving the deprivation index.

Dwelling Occupancy Status – Standard Classification

"Dwelling occupancy status provides information on whether dwellings are occupied or unoccupied, or are under construction. Dwelling occupancy status provides an indication of the housing stock available in New Zealand for habitation. Information on dwelling occupancy status can be used to evaluate, appraise, and predict urban infrastructure requirements, such as transport, sewerage, and water.

Dwelling Address Classification

"Dwelling address is a key variable for determining the geographic characteristics of the population. Dwelling address allows comparisons of outputs from different surveys on a regional basis. It is mandatory for the Census of Population and Dwellings to collect particulars as to the location of dwellings under the Statistics Act 1975. Dwelling address is a flat classification of over 46,000 categories."
