New Zealanders and our communities

| Meaningful employment and business ownership


In this page you will find how NEET rates have been changing across New Zealand regions. We are researching additional datasets to better understand security and quality of roles, career pathways, business ownership and development opportunities in tourism.

At the top right corner of each chart, you will find a button Download icon, black arrow pointing down to a black rectangle.. Click on it to annotate and/or export the graph to a file (PNG, JPG or SVG), or to download its underlying data as a JSON or CSV file.

At the bottom of each section, you will find the "How to read this graph" area with more information about how to interpret the chart and potential caveats around the data used.

If you are having difficulties using this tool, please contact us and we will be happy to help.
