About this chart
This chart lets you compare average annual workforce numbers for:
- some or all sectors
- designations for any sector
- business activities (ANZSIC06 categories) within a sector and designation.
- Show exact numbers by holding the mouse over the chart.
- Narrow or widen date range using the handles at the bottom of the chart.
- Hide or show a series by clicking its name in the legend below the chart.
- View full screen or download in different formats using the 'hamburger' menu top right.
- 'Combined total' shows numbers of unique people rather than a sum. One person can work for more than one sector and designation.
- Scale may not begin at zero because charts auto-fit to the data.
- Past year numbers can change as: (1) the IDI extracts are on an "as at" point in time basis, so data refreshes will re-read in any backdated data updates submitted by data providers; and (2) every data refresh involves re-extracting all the past years which are then subjected to Stats NZ's random rounding rules.
