How we measure success

We want to ensure the settlement information and services we provide are helping to achieve good settlement outcomes for recent migrants.

Monitoring trends

We measure and monitor trends across the 5 New Zealand Migrant Settlement and Integration Strategy outcomes and use the results to prioritise and improve the design and delivery of our settlement services.

Our annual reporting

We produce 2 annual reports to show where agencies may need to place settlement service effort:

  • the New Zealand Migrant and Integration Strategy Outcomes Indicators Dashboard report, which uses survey and administrative data to measure and monitor trends across the Strategy outcomes, and
  • the Settlement Strategy Supplementary report, which provides more detailed information to show how recent migrants are getting on in New Zealand and how this has changed over time.

Measuring the contribution of settlement services

During 2017/18, agencies developed a new, consistent approach to measuring the contribution to the Strategy outcomes of settlement services and initiatives funded through the Immigration Levy and Accrued Migrant Levy. The agencies involved collect information about:

  • what has been done (outputs)
  • how well processes are working
  • outcomes of the services and initiatives for clients.

We evaluate this information and use it to help us to keep improving services and to make appropriate settlement funding decisions.
