About us

The Labour and Immigration Research Centre leads New Zealand Government research and evaluation activity for employment and skills, workplace relations, workplace health and safety, immigration and settlement, and accident compensation policy.   Our research helps inform decision-making and discussion around labour market issues by providing a solid evidence base for labour market and immigration policy development, and improvements to service delivery. Our research products are of value to central and local government, employers, employees and industry groups and those with an interest in social and economic policy.

We want to guarantee you the highest possible standards of research, evaluation and monitoring information. We have developed protocols to ensure that quality measures are implemented throughout the research process, from a project’s inception to the public delivery of information.
