DWC has invested in Infometrics to provide readily accessible economic data for the West Coast.

The Infometrics online profile is an interactive and dynamic tool enabling users to delve down into the underlying data and compare the West Coast region with other regions in New Zealand.

The tool contains a wealth of information on the economy, labour market, standard of living, exports, tourism, business, skills, productivity and population.

The web based data is available publicly, with a 24-page booklet able to be downloaded from the webpage.
