Country – New Zealand Standard Classification

"Country is a key variable for determining population and economic statistics that relate to birthplace, country of residence, overseas trade, and balance of payments data. There are two types of country classifications: the four-numeric classification and the two-alpha classification. Statistics NZ maintains the four-numeric classification according to the numeric codes and names assigned by the UN Statistical Division and the International Organization for Standardization. The four-numeric classification of a country is a hierarchical classification with three levels.

Three classifications are included in the scope of this standard: dependent child under 18 indicator classification; dependent young person indicator classification; child dependency status classification.

Month has single categories 01 to 12 (representing the months of the year).

Activity Classification for the Time Use Survey

"The Activity Classification for the Time Use Survey (ACTUS) was developed to assist in the study of time use in the New Zealand context. This classification was designed to meet the requirements of the Statistics New Zealand Time Use Survey 2009/10. ACTUS is based on the activity classification used for the Statistics New Zealand Time Use Survey 1998/99. Changes to this classification have been made to reflect the needs of users and to improve international comparability with time use surveys in Australia, Canada, the United States of America, and the United Kingdom.
