Accommodation Data Programme (ADP)
The Accommodation Data Programme (ADP) is a new programme providing information about short-term accommodation activity at national, regional, and lower levels. It estimates the guest nights, occupancy rates and other measures relating to the accommodation industry.
Currently, property types measured under the ADP include hotels; motels & apartments; backpackers; holiday parks and campgrounds; and lodges and boutique accommodation.
The ADP replaces the Accommodation Survey, which was operated by Stats NZ, and ended in November 2019 with the publication of September data.
The ADP first launched with June 2020 data, meaning there is a gap in accommodation statistics, with none publically available for the period of December 2019 to May 2020. The ADP also has a different methodology to the Stats NZ survey, so they are not directly comparable.
The ADP is funded by MBIE and developed by tourism industry data specialists Fresh Information Limited.
