Release Information

The business demography statistics(BRS) is an annual snapshot of the structure and characteristics of New Zealand businesses as of February. Reported figures include counts of enterprises and geographic units by industry, region, institutional sector, business type, degree of overseas ownership, enterprise births, enterprise deaths, survival rate of enterprises and employment levels. The series covers economically significant private-sector and public-sector enterprises that are engaged in the production of goods and services in New Zealand.

The enterprises covered by the BRS are limited to enterprises in New Zealand that are economically significant and engaged in producing goods and services. All non-trading or dormant enterprises are excluded.

Up until the 2015 release, the BRS series used the Longitudinal Business Frame as its data source. The Longitudinal Business Frame was constructed from all current and historic Business Frame data. The Business Register (BR) that replaced the Business Frame in 2014 allows for easy creation of longitudinal snapshots. From the 2016 release onwards, the business demography statistics use the BR as its data source.

Data is provisional when first released and is subject to revisions.
