Statistics and research

We collect and analyse research and data about New Zealand's housing sector.

Housing Affordability Measure (HAM)

There are different ways we work to understand how affordable a home is. We have some measures that help us understand where renters are facing affordability barriers in terms of renting, or when considering whether or not they can afford to buy a home.

Housing market indicators

We've created a dashboard of housing indicators drawn from:

  • data purchased from Corelogic on housing sales, rating valuations and property attributes
  • MBIE's tenancy bond database
  • the National Policy Statement on Urban Development Capacity (NPS-UDC).
