Bite-sized stories of New
Zealand reveal the bigger picture – Media
Statistics help to tell the story of New
Zealand, and New Zealand in Profile: 2013, released today by
Statistics New Zealand, is a graphic illustration of this.
This publication tells New Zealand’s stories from the
past year – stories about our population, trade, travel,
labour force, prices, and social well-being. It is available
in both English and Māori.
"This year has been named the
International Year of Statistics. As part of the
celebration, we’ll be working to increase public awareness
of the power and impact of statistics in all aspects of
society. This latest publication is helping to do just
that," said Government Statistician Geoff Bascand.
Zealand in Profile: 2013 has been produced with support from
the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Te Ara –
The Encyclopedia of New Zealand.
"With bite-sized pieces
of information and informative graphics, this publication is
well read, by people both in New Zealand and overseas," said

Digital Evolution: Scoop Independent News Launches "Operation Chrysalis"
From today Scoop is beginning a process of public consultation with the political, business and civil society groups it has served for the past 15 and a half years.
"It is hoped that in time - with new leadership and increased community engagement - the chrysalis will incubate a new kind of Scoop, one which can sustainably continue Scoop's Mission 'to be an agent of positive change'", says Scoop Founder, Editor and Publisher Alastair Thompson.
"As big publishing shrivels, public participation in contributing and spreading news has grown. Scoop has evolved with this wave by providing an independent platform, committed to upholding democracy, providing a voice to all, and providing the public easy access to information about decisions which affect them."
