Population of this report
All 2013 data in this report is based on the census usually resident population count aged 15 years and over from New Zealand's 2013 Census of Population and Dwellings, held on 5 March 2013.
Because the 2011 Census was cancelled after the Canterbury earthquake on 22 February 2011, the gap between this census and the last one is seven years. The change in the data between 2006 and 2013 may be greater than in the usual five-year gap between censuses. Be careful when comparing trends.
Coupled with this gap is the change in the economic situation in New Zealand between 2006 and 2013. The New Zealand economy entered recession in early 2008. We had six successive quarters of negative gross domestic product growth as the global financial crisis developed. Economic growth averaged 4 percent a year from 2002 to 2006, while growth from 2007 to 2013 was about 1.4 percent. Keep this change in economic conditions in mind when comparing income from 2013 with income in 2006 and 2001.
