Economic Insights

The Infometrics tool on our website provides a range of interesting economic data.  

It offers the ability to drill down into both the Wakatipu Basin and Wanaka and Surrounds, offering detailed information for both areas.

You can also compare our district’s data against other regions throughout New Zealand to get an idea of how we’re doing in relation to the rest of the country.
