Bite-sized stories of New Zealand reveal the bigger picture


Bite-sized stories of New Zealand reveal the bigger picture – Media release

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.

New 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 Mr Bascand.

Read New Zealand in Profile: 2013 online, get it from libraries, embassies, or other public places, or request it by email from info@stats.govt.nz.
