Where does the housing map data come from?

House prices: Quotable Value. QV provides monthly updates on house prices by council area and, for the main centres, by groups of suburbs.

Homeownership rates/proportions of renters: Statistics New Zealand Census Data. This data is broken down into census ‘area units’, which are roughly equivalent to an urban suburb or rural community – the names usually refer to the names of local communities or prominent locations.

Rents: MBIE. regional level data is used to match with the income data, which is only released at regional level.

Incomes: Statistics New Zealand, New Zealand Income Survey. Data is released each year at regional level.

Heating: Statistics New Zealand Census Data. Data at council level used to match with the state house data.

State houses: Housing New Zealand. Waiting lists and vacant houses by council level are released quarterly.
