Understanding your community

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Knowing your community​​

Want to know more about the demographic and housing make-up of your neighbourhood, or any neighbourhood in our city? We've tapped into the Stats NZ data from the last three censuses (2006, 2013 and 2018) to show the profile of our communities' age, gender, ethnicity, and housing.

The data is broken down into census Statistical Area units, which align closely with traditional suburb boundaries. You can view these individually or grouped with neighbouring suburbs which have similar profiles. Or you can see a city-wide analysis of age, gender, ethnicity and housing statistics.

The information is provided for community groups and businesses to help them think about how they could tailor their services according to the needs of specific neighbourhoods.

More data will be added to the tool as it is released by Stats NZ.​​​​
