Whether the individual is an employee (earning wages or salary from an enterprise) or self-employed.
Ethnicity - Total response (Learner)
The ethnicity reported by the learner. Where a learner has reported more than one ethnicity the learner will be counted in each ethnicity. This means the total count by individual ethnicity may be greater than the total number of learners shown. When calculating participation rates, it is calculated as a proportion of learners with known ethnicity, i.e., where a learner has identified at least one ethnicity.
Ethnicity - Total response (Workforce)
The ethnicity reported by the individual from the "data.personal_detail" table in the Integrated Data Infrastructure. Where an individual has reported more than one ethnicity they will be counted in each ethnicity. Ethnicity information from different Integrated Data Infrastructure collections is combined using the source ranked ethnicity method by Stats NZ. Data sources containing ethnicity information are ranked according to quality, and each individual is assigned the ethnicity responses from the highest ranked data source available. Ethnicity is recorded at Level 1 groupings (European, Māori, Pacific, Asian, Middle Eastern/Latin American/African, Other).

- setting national skill standards for their industry
- providing information and advice to trainees and their employers
- arranging for the delivery of on and off-job training (including developing training packages for employers)
- arranging for the assessment of trainees and arranging the monitoring of quality training
Learner Attendance type
Indicates whether the course was attended intramural/extramural.
- Intramural and residing in New Zealand — covers courses where students must be physically present in scheduled teaching sessions in New Zealand in order to meet the course requirements. These courses may, however, include periods of supervised research and clinical or field experience which may take place outside the campus.
- Extramural and residing in New Zealand — covers students who are resident in New Zealand and unable to attend on-campus courses in New Zealand. These courses use postal services and distance communication Technology. These courses may, however, include short periods of on-campus attendance.
- Extramural and residing overseas — covers students who are resident overseas and are unable to attend on-campus courses in New Zealand.
- Intramural and residing overseas — covers courses where students must be physically present in scheduled teaching sessions at a Tertiary Education Organisation’s campus located in an overseas country in order to meet the course requirements.
These courses may, however, include periods of supervised research and clinical or field experience which may take place outside the campus.
Learners trends and analysis
Counts of learners are rounded to the nearest '5', values less than 3 are suppressed.
A Māori-owned business is defined as a business which meets one or more of the following criteria:
• A business that pays at least 50% of wages to active shareholders, directors or partners of Māori ethnicity or descent.

Tertiary qualifications and industry training programmes are assigned a New Zealand Standard Classification of Education (NZSCED) code depending on the subject area of the qualification for Tertiary Education Institutions and Private Training Establishments, or programmes for Industry Training Organisations. Where an industry training programme does not have a target qualification (limited credit programmes, supplementary credit programmes, complex apprenticeships), the NZSCED has been assigned by Tertiary Education Commission based on information derived from the programme information.
IBISWorld, an industry-market research company, uses earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) as an indicator of a company’s profitability. It is calculated as revenue minus expenses, excluding interest and tax.
Programme Completion Rate
The cohort-based programme completion rate measures how many learners in a starting cohort go on to complete a programme at the same NZQF level after a given period.
The progression rate is the proportion of students who complete a qualification at one Tertiary Education Organisation and within 12 months of completion enrol in higher level qualification at the same or a different Tertiary Education Organisation within New Zealand. It shows the proportion of students enrolling in a higher level qualification after completing a New Zealand Qualification Framework level 1 to 4 qualification
Private Training Establishment
Qualification Completion Rate
The qualification completion rate measures how many learners in a starting cohort go on to complete a qualification at the same level after a given amount of time.
Region refers to where the qualification or programme of delivery occurred, not necessarily where the learner resides. Where a student is studying extramurally, the learner region has been defined by the region associated with the learner's permanent postcode if available.

The gross total wages and salaries of all employees in the industry.
Worker Turnover Rate
This is a measure of workforce stability. The worker turnover rate reflects the movement of workers into and out of jobs. A lower percentage of worker turnover rate indicates more workforce stability.
Employee and/or employer numbers of certain industries might be suppressed according to IDI microdata suppression rules. Suppression will happen when employee/employer counts are fewer than 6 or count of entities are fewer than 3.
Refers to the total number of individuals who worked within an industry within a given calendar year.
Workforce trends and analysis
Employee and/or employer numbers of certain industries might be suppressed according to Integrated Data Infrastructure microdata suppression rules. Suppression will happen when employee/employer counts are fewer than 6 or count of entities are fewer than 3.
Year (Learners’ data)
The reporting year as provided in Ngā Kete is the year the learner was enrolled in a Tertiary Education Organisation. Where a learner’s enrolment starts in one year and ends in another, the learner will be reported in each year.
Year (LEED data)
The calendar year is divided into four quarters, each with three months. The latest quarter is the ‘reference quarter’.
Year in this dashboard refers to the 'calendar year' that an individual was employed or received income from a business. The only exception is the Māori business analysis, in which 'tax year' has been used due to the availability of business data in the Integrated Data Infrastructure. 2021 employer number is still incomplete due to the time-lag in reporting of employer's tax return. To avoid confusion, the 2021 employer number has been set to zero.
