This report provides a statistical overview of the supply and use of information and communication technology (ICT) in New Zealand in 2006.
It is the first report of its kind, and attempts to bring the collected data together in one volume, publish additional data not yet released from each survey, and provide additional analysis and international comparison not previously available.
The ICT industry has been identified as being an important industry in its own right, where high value can be added to the production and sales of goods and services. ICT infrastructure allows New Zealand businesses, people and government access to ICT services and information. The patterns of computer, Internet and other technology usage by New Zealanders inform industry, policy makers and individuals.
The data published here has been sourced from the programme of ICT surveys developed and collected by Statistics New Zealand between 2004 and 2006. Statistics NZ’s ICT Programme aims to measure the impact and use of ICT in New Zealand’s economy and society.
The initial results from each of the surveys were released up until April 2007 and this report completes the scheduled publications for the 2006 data. The report is intended to be repeated two-yearly to publish the detailed analysis from the six-monthly, annual and two-yearly ICT surveys.
Statistics NZ is grateful for the cooperation of the organisations and individuals who participated in the ICT surveys.
