About this chart

This chart shows worker numbers by employment type and designation. You can:

  • choose one sector to look at trends over time, or
  • choose a year to compare sectors for that year.
  • we exclude designations with estimated counts - 'relevant' and 'other'.

  • 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.
