Media advisory – 24 March 2011

Latest schedule of Statistics New Zealand information releases

The February 2011 earthquake in Christchurch continues to affect some Statistics NZ information releases, following damage to the building in the city centre, where many of our statistical releases are produced.

We’ve had to further delay the release of the December quarter releases of Wholesale Trade Survey and Economic Survey of Manufacturing. Both will now be released on 1 April.

Additionally, we can now confirm the release calendar through until 8 April. We will release an updated calendar before then.

The information releases listed are published at 10:45am, with a media release.

M = Information release & media release, with media conference at Statistics House in Wellington. The conference room opens at 10am and the embargo lifts and journalists can leave at 10:45am.
P = Publication (online or print) other than an information release
T = Table update
