Updated data on Auckland’s economy is now available on the Auckland Index, an interactive, online data tool which measures the performance of Auckland’s economy.

The Auckland Index – launched in October 2017 by Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) – provides the latest data on a range of areas in Auckland’s economy.

Data on the Auckland Index is complemented by the Auckland Growth Monitor report. The Auckland Growth Monitor was also launched in October 2017, with the next update due to be published in mid-2018.

These complementary tools provide data to assist local companies and organisations with their decision making, and promote Auckland as a business destination.

Patrick McVeigh, ATEED General Manager Business, Innovation & Skills, says: “Auckland is an innovative, globally connected city and the economic powerhouse of New Zealand – a country which is ranked first in the world for ease of doing business.”

“As Auckland’s economic growth agency, ATEED plays an important role in collating and disseminating quality data and insights about Auckland’s economy – and the Auckland Growth Monitor and Auckland Index have played a big part in this.”

“The Auckland Index and Auckland Growth Monitor have been well received by local businesses and organisations, as well as international audiences considering Auckland as a business or investment destination.”


The Auckland Index can be found at www.aucklandnz.com/auckland-, and the Auckland Growth Monitor can be downloaded here.
