COVID-19: Spotlight on regional New Zealand

Published: 08 June 2020

MBIE has released a suite of 16 regional factsheets to provide insight into regional council areas.

These factsheets provide insight into New Zealand’s COVID-19 response at a regional council level. They combine existing data sources with new and novel data to illustrate both how each region may be vulnerable to the economic impact of COVID-19, and how each region is recovering.

Regional factsheets include data and insights on each region's population, economic activity, employment, regional linkages, and benefits and support. Additionally, they highlight recent trends in retail spending, tourism, and construction trends.

MBIE has been compiling a range of resources to support policy advice and monitoring and provide the evidence base for the recovery phase.

More information is available on our COVID-19 data resources web page.
