Labour Market Analysis and Knowledge (M63)

Scope of Appropriation

Provides labour market information; analysis and validation of regional labour market information; participation on regional and sector labour market focused groups; and connections back to and across government.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

This appropriation will increase by $3.588 million to $10.613 million for 2007/08. The increase is mainly due to:

  • the drawdown of the Vote Employment Contingency for the Department of Labour's knowledge role ($2.800 million), and
  • transfer from 2006/07 for the Department of Labour's knowledge role ($800,000).

Policy, Research and Evaluation (M63)

Scope of Appropriation

This appropriation provides strategic advice and information about the labour market and its role in improving employment, social and economic outcomes for New Zealand.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

This appropriation will decrease by $786,000 to $7.085 million in 2007/08.  This decrease is mainly due to expenditure transfers to 2008/09 associated with the:

  • linked Employer-Employee Dataset (LEED) programme ($350,000), and
  • upskilling Research and Evaluation programme ($430,000).
