We’re still counting the cost of the Delta Lockdown, but as Principal Economist Brad Olsen highlights in our lead article, the bounce back is on across the country, which is supporting our outlook for the New Zealand economy.

Brad also examines public transport usage, with Infometrics analysis showing that Monday is the most popular day to stay at or work from home, as Kiwis focus more than before on their personal kingdom.

With an increasing need for detailed and timely data, Managing Director Andrew Whiteford looks at the experimental administrative census recently unveiled by Stats NZ. It utilises an incredible level of data collected from New Zealanders and will be key to targeting support to enhance community outcomes.

Finally, Economic Assistant Lily Stelling makes her newsletter debut with a Chart of the Month examining how restaurant activity is going as the world starts to open up.
