Regional Labour supply for visas

M. Rowe made this Official Information request to Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for M. Rowe to read a recent response and update the status.

From: M. Rowe

Dear Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment, and INZ, I am looking to understand the statistics behind how a region is classified as high supply or low supply under the new changes to essential skills visas: the sources of the data used, the theoretical rationale and the process.

To this end, under the OIA, please provide:

- any final briefings, notes, memos or reports that explain the process classifying a region into high or low supply.

- documentation on the process/method/model and data sources used to classify a region as high or low supply.

For clarity, as a researcher interested in the methodology, I am not looking for correspondence, draft documents or duplicate information unless the classification process has not been documented, in which case please provide any information on the sources of data used, how they were used, and any sample spreadsheets used (without data, or with dummy data is fine).

Yours faithfully,

M. Rowe
