Data sources

We used a range of data sources to compile this profile of Auckland.

2013 Census of Population and Dwellings

The New Zealand Census of Population and Dwellings was conducted on Tuesday, 5 March 2013. It is the official count of the number of people and dwellings in New Zealand.

Disability Survey: 2013

The Disability Survey is a national survey conducted after the census, as it requires census data for sample selection. In 2013, 23,000 disabled and non-disabled children and adults living in private households were surveyed across the country, as well as 1,000 adults living in residential care facilities. Disability is defined as a long-term limitation (resulting from impairment) in a person’s ability to carry out daily activities.

Household Economic Survey: 2014/15

 Data collection for the HES – Income 2014 took place over the 12 months from July 2014 to June 2015. The survey provides information on the incomes and expenditure patterns of private households throughout New Zealand.

Household Labour Force Survey: September 2015 quarter

The HLFS is a quarterly household survey. Its target population is the New Zealand civilian, usually resident, non-institutionalised population aged 15 years and over. The survey is designed to provide accurate estimates of the labour force, including estimates of the number of people employed and unemployed. Interviews are conducted with approximately 15,000 households (or around 30,000 respondents) over a 13-week period.

We used HLFS data from the September 2015 quarter unless otherwise stated. For the urban zone breakdown of Auckland, we used a five-year average (to the year ended September 2015).

International Travel and Migration: Year to June 2015

International travel and migration statistics are based on electronic arrival and departure records, and arrival and departure cards completed by passengers. They capture the number of passenger movements to and from New Zealand and additional details, such as country of residence and travel purpose. We used data from the year to June 2015 unless otherwise stated.

New Zealand General Social Survey: 2014

Data collection for the NZGSS 2014 took place over the 12 months from April 2014 to March 2015.

The NZGSS provides information on the well-being of New Zealanders aged 15 years and over. It covers a wide range of social and economic outcomes and shows how people are faring. The survey provides a view of how well-being outcomes are distributed across different groups within the New Zealand population.

New Zealand Income Survey: June 2015 quarter

The NZIS is an annual supplement to the HLFS in the June quarter. It collects income information on wages and salaries, self-employment, government transfers, investment income, and other transfer income. We used NZIS data from the June 2015 quarter unless otherwise stated.

Subnational population estimates: At 30 June 2015

Population estimates give the best available measure of the size and age-sex structure of the population usually living in an area. Estimates are based on the latest census data and on births, deaths, and migration since the census.
