Government data stewardship

Welcome to the data stewardship feedback and discussion forum.

Data stewardship is the careful and responsible collection, management, and use of data. Because government stewards and uses data on behalf of New Zealanders, it has a duty to ensure data is managed as a valuable asset and used ethically.

Stats NZ has developed a draft data stewardship framework and toolkit to enable government to better manage and safely access New Zealand's data. Introduce yourself and join the discussion to help us improve the framework and toolkit.
