If the source of a table is other than the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (or the New Zealand Forest Service for statistics prior to 31 March 1987), this is noted at the foot of the table. Tables are usually for a year ended 31 March or, for exports and imports, a year ended 30 June. Quarterly data for some series are available up to the September 2000 quarter.
The following symbols are used in the tables:
r revised figure or figures
- nil, zero or too small to be expressed
.. figures not available
not yet available - space left blank
p provisional (may be subject to revision)
n.e.c. not elsewhere classified
n.e.s. not elsewhere specified
Figures may be rounded off to the nearest thousand or other
convenient unit. This may result in a total that disagrees slightly with the sum of the
individual items as shown in the tables.
UNITS OF MEASUREMENT & CONVERSION FACTORS
These are given in Appendix 4.
All values are shown in New Zealand currency except where otherwise stated.
These will generally be first made available through the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry Statistical Release publications and on our website at:
