Population statistics are outdated. Last census data relate to 2013, latest birth and death statistics are available for 2015 (an update of annual data for 2016 was postponed from February 2017 to May 2017). GDP for latest quarter via http://www.stats.govt.nz/tools_and_services/releases_csv_files/csv-files-for-infoshare.aspx, but not clear which rows apply to GDP without additional research.

Thank you Jonathan Hunt for contributing to the Global Open Data Index. Added XLS format to B8, updated B9 to 2 as data is in XLS & CVS files.
