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

Greens: Russel Norman To Stand Down As Co-Leader
Green Party Co-leader Dr Russel Norman has announced today that he will stand down as leader at the party’s Annual General Meeting in May. Dr Norman will remain as Co-leader and retain his finance and climate change portfolios until the AGM.
“After nearly a decade as Co-leader, now is a good time to find a new challenge for myself, and to spend more time with my family” said Dr Norman.
“This is my ninth year as Co-leader and I think it’s time for a change. Now is a good time for new leadership for the Party. My replacement will start from a strengthened base and will have a full parliamentary term to establish himself in the role and take the Greens into government in 2017." More>>
