Accommodation Data Programme

The Commercial Accommodation Monitor is no longer produced by Stats NZ. The last results published were for the September 2019 month. For more information see Accommodation survey: September 2019.

The Accommodation Data Programme (ADP) is a new research programme launched as the replacement for the Commercial Accommodation Monitor. The ADP collects a small amount of data from accommodation providers each month, collates it, and then publishes reports that can be used to benchmark performance and monitor the industry.

The ADP is funded by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment and managed by NZ tourism data experts Fresh Info.

If you are an accommodation provider who is not yet signed up to the service, please do so here
