The National Demographic Indicators Series is a set of key social and demographic measures for every Territorial Authority (TA) in New Zealand. The series is drawn exclusively from the latest 2013 Census data, and Estimated Resident Population which is updated annually.

The indicators provide a snapshot of each TA at the 2013 Census and how it compares to other TAs. The measures have been selected to cover a broad range of socio-demographics and there is no assumption that a high or low score is “better” or “worse” on any given measure.

Tip: To fix table headers to the top of the table the full width of the table needs to be visible in your browser window. For small screens use CTRL - (minus) to zoom out. Click on the up and down arrows to sort the list in ascending or descending order on that parameter.
