Changes to the real TWI
28 February 2022
The Reserve Bank’s real trade-weighted index (TWI) is a weighted average of the New Zealand dollar with the currencies of New Zealand’s major trading partners, adjusted for relative inflation. It is calculated on a monthly basis and published in the B1 table.
Today’s release of the real TWI incorporates two changes:
- New real TWI weights and scale factor for 2022.
- Updated real TWI weights and scale factor from 1984 to 2021.
The revisions to the real TWI weights from 1984 to 2021 have little impact on the level of the real TWI.

More detail about the TWI methodology can be found in the Reserve Bank of New Zealand Bulletin article, Steenkamp, D (2014) Measuring New Zealand's effective exchange rate.
