Te Waka Economic Radar 29 April 2020

As this week we move to Alert Level 3 with new rules and responsibilities for Health and Safety, Te Waka, with the support of Waikato Regional Council Economist Blair Keenan, continues to collate data to gauge what is happening in the Waikato economy.

Charts in this week’s Radar show small movements in some of our data. This week we showcase more of our regional versus national statistics.  Our aim remains to next week showcase District level data on Jobseeker Support and Wage Subsidy applications in partnership with MSD. 

As we progress our journey we will continue to scan for signs of trouble, stabilisation, or sparks of life.

Note: The following report has been compiled to share the Waikato region’s COVID-19 recovery progress.  In all instances, sources are listed to ensure access to data can be found.  Information in this report will be updated weekly, with new measures added either by request or as additional information comes to hand.

District level data can be obtained for some of the information contained in this report.  Te Waka wishes to continue to progress conversations on the streamlining of obtaining this data with our ED community and business.
