About the Household Labour Force Survey estimated working-age population

The Household Labour Force Survey (HLFS) estimated working-age population is based on national resident population estimates that are adjusted to be consistent with the scope of the HLFS.

The working-age population is an estimate of the usually resident, noninstitutionalised, population of New Zealand aged 15 years and over. It provides the benchmark figure for the number of people in the labour market each quarter – results from the HLFS are then summed to this figure. It is based on 2013 Census data and is updated using early estimates of births, deaths, and net permanent and long-term migration.

We release the data to help analysts model changes in the labour market more accurately.
