COVID-19 and labour market statistics for the June 2020 quarter – Media release
22 July 2020
COVID-19 has created unusual situations across the labour market for many people living in New Zealand. COVID-19 restrictions have also limited Stats NZ’s ability to collect survey data about the labour market.
We have published a summary of the impacts of COVID-19 on the methodology used for the June 2020 quarter labour market estimates. We focus on additional data collected; official labour force concepts and definitions; guidance given for the treatment of the wage subsidy; impact of border restrictions on the working-age population; and the impact of restrictions on data collection.
Labour market statistics: June 2020 quarter will be published on 5 August 2020.
