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 . 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.

How to read this graph:
Each line of this graph represents a regional authority. The x-axis shows the quarters with available data, and the y-axis shows the percentage point change in NEET rates.
Each line of this graph represents a regional authority. The x-axis shows the quarters with available data, and the y-axis shows the percentage point change in NEET rates. The percentage change in NEET rate is calculated by subtracting one quarter's NEET rate from the NEET rate of the same quarter in the previous year. You can click the show all button next to the chart legend to make all the available regions visible, or the hide all button to clear the selection. You can set your own selection of series by clicking the series label in the legend (on the top of the graph) on or off as needed. Using the grey controls at the top, you can also group data together annually instead of quarterly by selecting a month that the year will end on (e.g. selecting March sums data points from April to March, thus YE March 1979 for example begins in April 1978).
