New Zealand's Wellbeing Outlook

This section provides an overview of New Zealand's wellbeing outlook.[3] We want New Zealanders' wellbeing to drive the decisions we make. This means measuring progress on a broader range of indicators than just GDP.

This section draws on evidence from the Treasury's Living Standards Framework (LSF), together with evidence from Stats NZ Official Statistics, the OECD, and specialist advice from agencies and experts, like the Government Chief Science Advisors.


  • [3]The main evidence sources of wellbeing data for this section are the Treasury's Living Standards Framework Dashboard and Indicators Aotearoa New Zealand.
