About business employment measures
On 9 December 2020, we will publish Business employment data: September 2020 quarter, a new quarterly employment measure to assist with analysis of the labour market. These measures use a combination of data from two different Inland Revenue sources: the Employer Monthly Schedule (EMS) and payday filing. Both are associated with PAYE (pay as you earn) tax data. All New Zealand employers are required to report PAYE data for their employees to Inland Revenue.
This data will be used to produce a quarterly filled jobs and gross earnings series, published nine weeks after the end of the reference quarter. The series will be backdated to the June 2011 quarter.
