Forecasting and modelling/analytics

The Health Workforce Directorate provides data and information to support effective workforce planning, maintain the supply of trained professionals and enable well-informed career decisions. Our key goal is to align workforce planning with health need.

The Health Workforce Directorate has developed a sophisticated internationally-recognised modelling system to help ensure the health workforce is well trained, appropriately configured, and able to address the future health needs of New Zealanders. It uses annual practicing certificate data to calculate a range of factors including age-specific entry and exit rates, ageing of the workforce and population changes.
