Data on credit card spending data for the month issued by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand.

Says the RBNZ on the survey:

  • Data is sourced from the Credit Card Survey. The survey covers credit and charge cards.
  • The survey defines credit and charge cards as those that can be used to make purchases and obtain credit at all merchants accepting branded credit and charge cards in New Zealand and overseas. It is different from a store card with brand logos (e.g. GEcreditline, Qcard, Farmers Card), which can only be used at a limited number of merchants. Store cards are not in scope of the survey.
