Data dictionary and caveats to information

Industries were divided between Workforce Development Councils based on Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC) class codes. The ANZSIC class codes assigned to Muka Tangata, and the 14 industry groups - Ngā Rourou - are detailed here Our industries - Muka Tangata.

The ANZSIC is used by Stats NZ for standardised collection, analysis and dissemination of economic data on an industry basis. The ANZSIC is a hierarchical classification with four levels; Divisions (the broadest level), Subdivisions, Groups and Classes (the finest level). Click here to find out more about the ANZSIC.

While ANZSIC class codes are the most detailed industry classification available, these classifications vary in their precision. For example the class code A017100 for ‘poultry farming (meat)’ is very specific, where code A052900 for ‘other agriculture and fishing support services’ includes businesses undertaking lots of different types of activities. This can mean it is not always immediately obvious to industries which ANZSIC class code they belong to. A full list of what is included and excluded from each class code is provided as part of the ANZSIC classification. The detailed classification | Australian Bureau of Statistics.

The majority of self-employment data is sourced from annual tax returns. Therefore, 2021 self-employed data is incomplete due to the time lag in reporting of their tax return.
