    Published Jun 2000

    Authors: Suzi Kerr and Jason Timmins

    Abstract

    This paper sets the stage for current Treasury research on New Zealand regional socio-economic issues by:

    • Outlining a basic theoretical framework;

    • Introducing a regional database and Geographic Information Systems, a new empirical tool for data analysis; and

    • Illustrating the potential of this data and tools for analysing policy relevant issues by testing some empirical hypotheses derived from the theoretical framework.
