GDP Live

GDPLive is real-time forecasting of New Zealand's Gross Domestic Product.

Using AI and a myriad of official and unofficial sources, the AI team at Massey University's Albany campus has built a machine learning system that forecast's GDP nationally, regionally, and by industry sector.

Full explanations of how it works is here and its track record is here.

More detail of its data partners is here.

New Zealand's official national accounts are published about eighty days after the end of each quarter. But the data that builds these results is all available earlier, coming in continuously. That official flow, and some unofficial but highly relevant parallel data streams are what powers the results presented in the charts on this page.

As most readers should know, GDP isn't everything, its just one way - a way that has well-known flaws - to estimate an economy's size and growth. But until a better way of representing this scorecard is developed, GDP remains a useful resource so long as you understand its limitations.
