Territorial Local Authority Benefit Factsheets

Territorial Local Authority (TLA) Benefit Factsheets are the first set of information to be made available through a new, interactive reporting tool on the MSD Website.

The TLA factsheets start from March 2006. No historical information is available for these reports.

Notes: The Ministry strongly advises care when using these fact sheets. This ordering will be fixed as soon as possible.

1. Where variables within the TLA factsheets total less than five, and possibly for some related variables, the data will be suppressed or presented after merging certain variables together. For instance, with some TLAs, the number of people on Unemployment Benefit for the ages 18-24 years may be too small, so this data may be added to the 25-39 years group and shown as a total figure for the ages 18-39 years.

2. Trends in numbers receiving a benefit are more reliably shown by comparisons between the same quarter 12 months apart than by comparison between consecutive quarters.

Note: In a small number of Territorial Local Authority (TLA) fact sheets for December 2012 and March 2013, the ordering of categories of time receiving an Invalid’s Benefit differs from the standard sequential ordering. The TLAs affected are:

  • Carterton District
  • Hurunui District
  • Kaikoura District
  • South Wairarapa District
  • Stratford District
  • The Ministry strongly advises care when using these fact sheets. This ordering will be fixed as soon as possible.
