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
