We construct an annual land value database at the meshblock (MB) level for the Greater Auckland region. The database provides a resource for research work that requires land values (per hectare) across the region. The data is based on valuation records sourced from Quotable Value New Zealand (QVNZ). It covers seven Territorial Authorities (TAs): Rodney District, North Shore City, Waitakere City, Auckland City, Manukau City, Papakura District and Franklin District. The valuation data, which are generally available on a three-yearly cycle for each TA, are interpolated to annual frequency using sale price data for residential vacant land at the TA level. The resulting database extends from 1990-2003 (annually) for MBs in all seven TAs. In some TAs, data are available for slightly longer periods depending on source data availability.
