The data: coverage, periodicity and timeliness

Coverage characteristics

We source data from our New Credit Flows Survey. The number of respondents for the NCF survey are 20 registered banks, of which 13 are locally incorporated and 7 are the branches of the dual registered banks.

The table shows aggregated new lending data from the monthly New Credit Flows survey which includes housing, business, agriculture and consumer new lending.

The data collection covers new lending drawn down or facilities loaded in the reporting month. The New Credit Flows survey only reports the flows during the month instead of the ‘as at’ stock data at the end of the month such as that is reported in our Bank Balance Sheet Survey.  

Data starts from April 2021 and is denominated in NZ dollars.

Periodicity and timeliness

We publish data 25 working days after the end of the reference period.

Access by the public

Statistics release calendar

The statistics release calendar provides a long-term plan of scheduled releases. We update and release it on the first working day of the month.

Provision of information about revisions and advance notice of major changes in methodology

Provisional data are italicised. Data are deemed provisional when a series is under review. New data, or revised data, are in bold font. This applies to the summary table only and not Excel files. We generally publish revisions when we update and release the next table. Should we need to make revisions more promptly, we will post a special note on the website. We also post any major changes in methodology as a special note.

This data collection shows the value of new lending in the reporting month. The values reported are flows of new lending that has occurred during the reporting month.
We publish stock position data in the Banks: Assets – Loans by purpose (S31) table. Please refer to the attached technical note for more information about how these two data sources compare.

Value of new lending

Lending values are reported once new lending has been drawn down. In the case of a revolving facility only the new or additional limit value is reported and not the general churn/use within the facility that means the use of existing facilities is not included. New lending values do not include any changes in the product or structure of existing loans.

Residential new lending comprises:

  • Owner occupier property use
  • Residential investor property use
  • Business loans fully secured by residential mortgage 

Owner occupier property use

Owner occupiers are borrowers who own or are in the process of buying or building the house or flat they will live in as their principal place of residence. 

Residential investor property use

Investors are entities or persons borrowing for the purpose of building or purchasing residential property to rent. This includes ‘mum and dad’ investor loans and any person(s) that have a separate residential investor property use loan that is not for their normal business purpose.

Business loans secured by residential property

Business loans where the only security type is a residential mortgage loan. The borrower declares that the loan is for business purposes as part of the loan application. Excludes loans cross collateralised between residential property and other assets.

Lending terms 

Floating

Floating rate loans where the interest rate can or does change the following business day and offset loans.

Fixed

All other loans that are not floating or non-interest bearing, which are reported in the bucket under the appropriate fixed interest rate period.
