Council engages Infometrics to provide up-to-date economic data on the Kaipara District.
Council makes this information publicly available to assist local businesses and other stakeholders in our District.
Infometrics provides Kaipara District Council with an Annual Economic Profile, a Quarterly Economic Monitor and a Community Profile (demographic data).
Similar Data for Northland as a whole is available via Northland Regional Council’s website as is a Northland Annual Economic Profile.
To recognise the diversity of Kaipara’s communities, the Annual Economic Profile data has also been broken down to apply specifically to the following areas:
Council also commissioned Infometrics to provide Population and Household Projections for Kaipara. These project how the number of people and households living in our district are likely to change over the next 30 years.
Council prepares an Environmental Scan report every three years to report on the state of the physical, demographic, economic, and infrastructure environment in which it operates. This includes describing the current state of the environment in which the Council operates and the trends that drive change in this environment. The Environmental Scan is useful for gaining an overview of the District, its people, infrastructure and economy, and the challenges and opportunities it faces. The Environmental Scan is used by Council to inform its planning decisions.
Infometrics have prepared a range of insights and information on COVID-19. These insights are now available to the public.
Council also commissioned Infometrics to provide a webinar giving an overview of how the COVID-19 pandemic and New Zealand Lockdown will affect Kaipara’s economy. While this webinar was intended for staff and elected members, Council has been given permission to share it with its communities. It should be noted that this situation is constantly evolving. Therefore, this webinar reflects Infometrics’ understanding of the unfolding situation as at 03 April 2020.
Council staff recommend the following resources as useful for further study:
