Statistics and research
We collect and analyse research and data about New Zealand's housing sector.
Housing Affordability Measure (HAM)
First released in 2017, this is a new approach to measuring housing affordability using household-level data from StatsNZ's Integrated Data Infrastructure (IDI). This work is currently undertaken by the Ministry for Business, Innovation and Employment. The next release will be from this Ministry of Housing and Urban Development webpage on 24 July 2019.
Rental bond data
The Rental Bond database records all new rental bonds lodged with the Ministry for Business, Innovation and Employment each month.
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).
