Local businesses now have more reliable economic data available to use, following the release of the Infometrics December 2016 Ashburton District Quarterly Economic Monitor and the 2017 Regional Perspectives Report.
The reports are available with the recently released Infometrics Annual Economic Profile on the Ashburton District Council website.
"These reports provide more reliable economic indicators for the district and an analysis of some of the main industries across the country. This is comprehensive and accurate information that businesses and organisations can use to further inform their business strategies," Community Relations Manager Vincie Billante says.
"This data further empowers the district with accurate, up-to-date information, and we are delighted to provide it to the community" she adds.
Infometrics compiles data from sources including Statistics New Zealand, Inland Revenue Department and Paymark. Council purchased the right to this information from Infometrics last year.
The Infometrics Annual Ashburton District Economic Profile was released at the beginning of March 2017.
