Abstract

Services are an important segment of the New Zealand economy. The industry acts as an intermediary between manufacturers and secondary processors and consumers. The level of wholesale trade activity provides an important measure of the economy. In order to provide this information, Statistics New Zealand conducts a Quarterly Survey of Wholesale Trade. This survey produces timely, short term, indicator statistics on the sub industries within the wholesale segment. The survey provides quarterly data on the value of sales.

Purpose

There are nearly 21,000 businesses within the selected services industries. Statistics New Zealand samples a small proportion of these at the end of each calendar quarter. This information is used by the government (notably the Treasury and Reserve Bank) to monitor the economic performance of the services secto. Results from the Selected Services Survey are one of the important components of Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The information is also used by business and industry commentators as a way of monitoring economic trends and business outlook.

History of the Selected Services Survey from 2010:

The selected other services information comes from the Other Services Survey, a new survey that covers the activity previously collected in the ANZSIC96-based Retail Trade Survey (RTS). Monthly GEO data for this subdivision is no longer available from the RTS. Instead, a quarterly survey of ‘selected other services’ collects data for the KAUs for these previously ‘retail’ industries. The results are available on Statistics NZ’s online Infoshare database at the national level only. Data is collected for total sales only.

Included into the selected services survey;

Subdivision S94, repair and maintenance Repair and maintenance activities are carried out on a wide range of items of plant, equipment, household appliances, and personal goods. The nature of repair and maintenance activities varies, from engineering operations such as engine reconditioning, to minor servicing operations such as replacing a part in a washing machine. In ANZSIC96, these activities were classified to a number of different divisions. In ANZSIC06, their classification follows the production function. Repair and maintenance activities that generally have a different production function to the units that create the products being repaired or maintained have moved to the new subdivision 94, repair and maintenance. The new ANZSIC06 subdivision covers the following ANZSIC96-based activities: • A range of other machinery equipment repair and maintenance moves from division C, manufacturing. • Computer repair and maintenance moves from division C, manufacturing, and division L, property and business services. • Domestic appliance repair and maintenance moves from division C, manufacturing, and division G, retail trade. • Electronic and precision equipment repair and maintenance moves from division C, manufacturing, and division G, retail trade. • Gas appliance repairs moves from division E, construction. • Car radio and air-conditioning installation moves from division F, wholesale trade. • Automotive repair and maintenance moves from division G, retail trade. • Clothing, footwear, and personal accessories repair moves from division G, retail trade. • Installation of television antennae, cabling, and satellite dishes moves from division G, retail trade. • Transport container repair or refurbishing moves from division I, transport and storage. • Computer and office machine repair and maintenance moves from division L, property and business services. Implementing ANZSIC 2006 in manufacturing, wholesale, and selected other services
