Data and Statistics Bill

Published: December 21, 2021

Submitting To: Governance and Administration Select Committee

Issue for Business: Given the StatisticsNZ Act originates from 1975, a review of it is timely, especially when the narrow focus on collecting data via statistical surveys has resulted in insufficient tools for ensuring the supply and quality of administrative data used for producing official statistics. While we generally support the thrust of the Bill, we highlight a few concerns, including the request on the business community for data, powers of entry and inspection, the role of private sector surveys and ensuring data/statistics for all New Zealanders.

Action: Submitted to Select Committee in December 2021

Outcome: Awaiting report of Select Committee
