The Data

Data Ventures is the commerical arm of Stats NZ, which functions as a trusted intermediary that pulls datasets from various sectors for later re-distribution to the platform's customers. The platform collects statistical data, government data, and private sector data, such as that from telecommunications companies.

How the data was shared

Data Ventures serves as a trusted intermediary that provides platform for its customers to access the data that are trusted in their storage. For its first project, for example, they are "working with confidentialised data-sets from multiple companies, aggregating those to remove the ability to identify the source and then providing snapshots of population density."

Purpose of Data Shared

From the website: "For each product we bring [multiple datasets] together while making that data confidential, complete and ready to sell to our customers to help them make fully informed, data-driven decisions."
