Analytical tools and services

We’re developing a range of tools to support improved social service decision making and measure and analyse service effectiveness.

Social Investment Analytical Layer (SIAL)

The Social Investment Analytical Layer (SIAL) will help agencies understand the potential return on investment (ROI) before investing in a new service.

Social Investment Data Foundation (SIDF)

The Social Investment Data Foundation (SIDF) code produces datasets within the IDI that are ready for analysis. It reduces the time to generate datasets and speeds up the analysis.

Social Investment Measurement Map (SIMM)

The Social Investment Measurement Map allows users to see what indicators or measures are available in the IDI to assess interventions.

Tools for technical users

We've produced a series of tools, with reusable code hosted on GitHub, which is intended for an experienced technical audience with access to Stats NZ's Integrated Data Infrastructure (IDI).
