Department of Labour Half Yearly Employment Information Survey - 1978 to 1988

Hi, I am doing some productivity research and I wondered if you would have the employment numbers by NZ industry for the period 1978 to 1988. The DOL collected this before it became the QEX dataset. My data is annual and I need to go back earlier than 1989 for my labour productivity calculations. Many thanks, Jeff Thomson

The raw data does not exist in any form we can find however the information is most likely available in the National Library or Alexander Turnbull library in the published journal series "Labour and Employment Gazette" and specifically in "Supplementary Tables to the Labour and Employment Gazette"
