The residential price change trends report has been updated for recent quarters. In addition, we’ve made a couple of small enhancements to the report.

  • There is now a parameter that allows users to shift the base date of the index.
  • An additional NZIER cost index option is available - the long-term energy outlook. This version of the cost index attempts to remove the effect of the current year’s hydrology situation by excluding settlement prices for futures contracts from the preceding four quarters. This option is not shown by default but is available in the series filter parameter.
