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, non-institutionalised, civilian 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.
Statistics New Zealand releases the data to help analysts model changes in the labour market more accurately.
