Employee count
Description

Discontinued from the Accommodation Survey. The employee count was a head count of all salary and wage earners for the reference period. It was mostly employees but could include a small number of working proprietors (who pay themselves a salary or wage). The employee count was mainly sourced from the Inland Revenue Department's Employer Monthly Schedule although there were a small number of enterprises whose employee count was collected by Statistics New Zealand survey.
