Adapted by Ministry for the Environment and Statistics New Zealand to provide for environmental reporting transparency
Dataset used to develop the "Wildfire indicator [available at www.stats.govt.nz/indicators/wildfire-risk]
This indicator measures fire danger using the New Zealand Fire Danger Rating at 30 sites around New Zealand from 1997 to 2019, although not all sites start at 1997. We report on the number of days per year with ‘very high and extreme’ (VH+E) fire danger for each of these sites.
More information on this dataset and how it relates to our environmental reporting indicators and topics can be found in the attached data quality pdf.
